I’m delighted to announce that we have come back from Dublin with two awards from the Irish Blog Awards – Best Business Blog and Best Specialist Blog. Thanks again to everyone who voted in the first round, to the judges, the sponsors, the organisers, and to all our readers and customers.
It was a good night. Rick O’Shea did a great job as MC, and of course Damien pulled the whole thing off with style. The best moment for me was when Bernie GoldbachÂ pressed his award on Damien, who certainly deserves acclamation. Pure class.
I enjoyed meeting fellow bloggers, including the nominees for the business award who were very gracious and definitely worth keeping an eye on. Krishna De, by the way, has posted the podcast of all of us here.
Congratulations to all of the winners and all of the nominees.
