The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Two Door Cinema Club
22The Waterboys

The Waterboys's leader Mike Scott is a massive song writing talent but he is not Irish. He is a Scottish.

They came in like and went away like a bullet! Still listening 20 yrs later!

23Dana

Dana's Easter album 'Love my Life' and 12" single 'For You, For Us' have money back guarantees, if not totally satisfied... in select stores now! Very select stores.

24The Coronas

An amazing band... Are WAY too good to be this low in the list :(... Just go see them live, they are amazing!

25The Boomtown Rats
26Therapy?Therapy? is an alternative metal band from Northern Ireland. The band was formed in 1989 by guitarist–vocalist Andy Cairns from Ballyclare and drummer-vocalist Fyfe Ewing from Larne, Northern Ireland.
27The Bogey Boys

One of the most underrated live acts EVER in Ireland and the UK. Criminally written out of Irish Rock History!

Class band. Never mentioned in the 'heyday' early eighties retrospectives, oddly, when they were probably the biggest live rock draw in Ireland, and touring Europe and the US, but D.C. nien, The Blades and several others always 'trotted out' when, in fact, they meant little to anyone outside of the Baggott Inn!

28My Bloody Valentine
29Glen Hansard

An angelic voice... Raw talent at it's best, also I met him once and he is a true gentleman

Amazing artist! Deserves to be in the top 5 at least! So underrated!

30Clannad
31Hozier

Listen to "From Eden" or "Like Real People Do" or basically any of his other songs. He's brilliant.

One of the best rising stars of 2015. Glad to see he didn't turn out to be a one hit wonder.

An amazing artist with such a pure, beautiful voice, fabulous!

# 34? I don't know what kind of music the world listens to but this guy clearly deserves a slot in the top 10.

This guy is a living legend... He is so talented, just amazing!
