Thousands of Irish musical enthusiasts from all over the country made their way to Killarney over the weekend to attend the annual AIMS (Association of Irish Musical Societies) awards - or what is best described as, the Irish version of the Tony Awards.
The winners were announced - to over 1,300 attendees and thousands more viewing online - by Today FM’s Fergal D’Arcy at a gala banquet dinner in the INEC, Gleneagle Hotel on Saturday night, following a circus-themed fancy dress the night previous.

And yes, you guessed it, mix circus with musical theatre and what do you get? The hit movie, The Greatest Showman.
Each year, a different musical society takes on the challenge of performing the opening number, and this year it was Bravo Theatre Group from Loughrea, Galway.
And as this year's Tony was a little slower tempo than others years, they gave the Broadway babies a serious run for their money with their movie melody.
And then came the awards - here's the list of the big winners.
*The awards are divided into two categories, Gilbert and Sullivan.
