The Hot Press Annual: Irish Women Take A Stand Together

A very special publication to end a thoroughly crazy year.

2020 has been the most extraordinary year since the end of the Second World War. With the Covid-19 pandemic raging, normal life was turned upside down. And musicians were faced with all sorts of new dilemmas. Against that  backdrop, Ireland’s female artists decided to take a stand. Ruth-Anne Cunningham brought them together for Women In Harmony, taking a cover of The Cranberries’ ‘Dreams’  to No.1. As the follow-up ’Together at Christmas’ repeats that success, the Hot Press Christmas Annual tells the remarkable story of How Irish Women Artists Took a Stand Together. Plus: 

  • How local radio in Ireland brought light into the Covid darkness 
  • The dramatic end of Donald Trump’s presidency
  • The explosion of Black Lives Matter;
  • Ireland’s failure to reach Euro 2020. 
  • And: we name the Albums, Tracks, Movies, Books and Games of the Year. 
  • Starring: Bob Geldof, Angela Scanlan, Johnny Marr, Rob Kearney, Niamh Campbell, Damien Dempsey, Donal Ryan, Gemma Bradley, C'estlaviedmai and RTÉ’s Brian O’Donovan in Washington, among many more…
