Danny O’Donoghue, Mark Sheehan and Glen Power have been recognised for their outstanding success on the Official Irish Charts over the past 10 years, including a combined eight Number 1s this decade across the Official Irish Singles and Albums Charts, the most among homegrown acts.
The Script told OfficialCharts.com/Ireland: "We’d like to take this time out to thank all of our family and friends, Sony Ireland, anyone who has been involved in our career to date. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!"

The Script scored three Number 1 singles this decade: For The First Time (2010); Hall of Fame featuring will.i.am (2013); and Superheroes (2014), tied with Jedward for the most achieved since 2010 by an Irish act.
On the Official Irish Albums Chart, The Script have achieved five chart-topping records this decade, the most for an Irish act, and the joint-most overall tied with One Direction and Nathan Carter. The Script’s Number 1 albums since 2010 are: Science & Faith (2010); #3 (2012); No Sound Without Silence (2014); Freedom Child (2017); and Sunsets & Full Moons (2019).
The Script’s second studio album Science & Faith is also the fastest-selling album of the decade by an Irish act after it shifted 13,200 copies in its first week of release back in September 2010.
In addition, The Script claimed a Number 1 album back in 2008 with their self-titled debut, meaning 2019’s chart topper Sunsets & Full Moons extended their 100% track record of Number 1 studio albums to six.
