The LMS is the foremost Live Music society in UCC. One of the biggest goals of the society is to provide high-quality live music entertainment to students. We also promote local musicians (from UCC and elsewhere) and aim to provide resources and support for musicians.

Every year we run a series of showcase gigs where we exhibit the very best talent that Cork & UCC have to offer. We also organise a Battle of the Bands competition, which has proven to be a huge success. The prizes for the 2014 competition included a spot at Castlepalooza Music & Arts Festival and a recording session with Bubble Room Studios.

All of our gigs and events are completely booked, organised and run by members of the LMS.

We run Meet & Greet events for musicians and people in the music industry to provide students with a chance to meet other musicians, gig promoters, recording studios etc.

In 2014/15 we plan on bringing bigger bands to play in UCC. We want to hold even better events, so that musicians have the best supports possible. For this to happen, we need your help! Joining the LMS will provide you with an opportunity to gain experience in booking and promoting gigs and to make great contacts in the music industry.

Meet the LMS Committee

Eamonn Clancy -

Eamonn is the auditor and supreme leader of the LMS. His job will be to over see the running of the society for the year. He will ensure that the LMS will deliver the best possible series of events for you! If you have any suggestions for events then feel free to get in contact with him.

And at least if anything goes wrong, we can blame Yom!

Eamonn joined the LMS 2 years ago as on Ordinary Committee Member and quickly rose through the ranks to Vice-Auditor & Events officer last year, before taking his position of Master Chief. He is currently in 4th year Computer Science.

(Yes, he is that small and not just far away!)

Ciaran Mckenzie -
Vice-Auditor & Events Officer

Ciaran is the vice-auditor and Events Officer of the LMS. It is his job to take charge of some special projects that the society is involved in. He will also help Jake make sure that the society is running efficiently and that everyone is doing their job.

As Events Officer it is Ciaran's job to organise events and make sure that all of our events run smoothly on the day. He has to coordinate with the different committee members (whip in hand) to ensure that everyone knows their jobs on the day of the event and that any people performing at the event are kept up-to-date.

This is Ciaran's first year as part of the LMS, but has been involved with the society before when he competed in the 2014 Battle of the Bands! He is currently studying Computer Science.

Pádraig Collins -

Pádraig is our Secretary for 2014/15. He is responsible for ensuring that the weekly meetings run smoothly. He keeps a record of all meetings and events and ensures that we all know what’s going on. Pádraig joined the society last year as our Collaborations Officer.

He is currently studying for a masters.

Cathal Toomey -
Equipment Officer

Cathal is the Equipment Officer (Gollum) for the LMS. His job includes making sure all our equipment (His Precious) is in working order and getting it too and from our events!

This is Cathal's third year in the LMS having been our PRO for 2012/13 and Equipment Officer last year. He is currently in 4th Year Computer Science, and has also been part of the Indiependence Music & Arts Festival crew for four years.

Jonny O'Mahony -
Entertainments & Collaborations Officer

Jonny, as a very stereotypical ginger, is magnifficently and gloriously handsome. We have actually set up a special seccurity team to prevent women from flooding the stage when he walks around the venue. Being a drummer, he is better than all other musicians, he is intensely talented, and makes the world shake, very literally. 

If we're ever in a spot where we need a bit of entertainment, Jonny's got us covered!

Jonny wrote all of this, it was weird, and nobody was overly comfortable with it. But Yom Yom was satisfied.
