Meteor Ireland
Music Award Winners

The Meteor Ireland Music Awards, referred to as "The Meteors", are the national music awards of Ireland. They have been held every year since 2001 and are promoted by MCD Productions. The Meteors are the equivalent to the United Kingdom's BRIT Awards, Canada's Juno Awards, and the Grammy Awards in the United States. The awards take their name from their sponsors, Ireland's third most popular mobile phone company, Meteor.
