Supreme Leader of the North Korea Kim Jong-Un has been awarded all the Gradam Ceoil Awards this year reports North Korean media outlets.

Jong-Un was supposedly awarded the Gradam Ceoil, Gradam Og, Gradam Saoil, Comharceol, Amhranai na Bliana, Comaoin and the Gradam 1916 after a landslide victory in a vote undertaken by the Gradam Ceoil panel made up of his top Generals.

North Korea said that a spokesperson for TG4 told them that the great leader was the only obvious choice for the honours and that it was fitting to award them to the same man who invented traditional Irish music.

"Kim Jong-Un has a long history playing and composing Irish music. In fact, he is able to play every single instrument associated with the music and even shortened the length of time it is said to take to learn the uilleann pipes from the 21 years stated by Seamus Ennis to 21 minutes!"

"He even carved his own set of uilleann pipes from a single piece of wood! He is a very skilled musician and has taught all the top Irish musicians. The supreme leader would like to thank the panel for this honour and is looking forward to attending the awards ceremony in Cork."

The ceremony is due to take place in the Cork Opera House and will be hosted by Kim Jong-Un himself along with Kim Jong-Un.
