PLAY IRISH is an IASCA initiative to support, elevate and celebrate Irish music of all genres.

The initiative was origianally set up in 2011 to get more Irish music played on Irish radio. We have met with representatives from the Radio industry, the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland and the Department of Arts, Heriatege & the Gaeltact and have presented a solution to these parties.
The solution is:
 
* To introduce a new digital distribution system for the independent sector | DONE - Yangaroo Music Ireland 
* To introduce a new uniform definition of Irish Music for broadcasting purposes | IN PROGRESS 
* To create a campaign in 2016 to market Irish music to the Irish public
* To find ways of working with other organisations to support and celebrate Irish music internationally IN PROGRESS
