Umm, I won!

Just a few moments ago, I received texts from Darragh, Tom and Ryan to tell me that this blog had won Best Photoblog at the Irish Blog Awards!
It’s a good thing I’m not up there because I don’t know what to say except “thank you” to everyone who voted for me. I honestly didn’t expect to win, not when you see the competition I was up against. Crikey!

Looks like Geared Up is blogging the Awards live, and Irish Blogs is the place to go for more!
Congrats Tom! You won the Best Technology Blogger Award!
I see from Irish Eyes that Roger Galligan won “Best contribution to the Irish Blogosphere” which doesn’t surprise me at all. His Irish Blogs and Cork Blogs sites make all our weblogs much more accessible to new visitors and a central point from which to glean what bloggers in Ireland are talking about!
I voted for ya Roger, congratulations to you and the team! :)

    Congratulations Donncha, I was at the awards last night and its a pity you were not there to pick up your well deserved award, a great night was had by all. But there is always next year. Well done again.

    Whilst I haven’t seen most of the other nominees for the category, your photoblog has become one of my daily essential stop points for me and it never fails to impress!

    Thanks for continuing to share your work and congratulations on the win!

    Once again, congrats, pity you weren’t there last night to bask in the well deserved glory. Whilst the competition was very tough, your award is most deserved, keep up the good work!

    Donncha. Nice one and all that, but let’s cut to the chase. What was the prize?

    Congratulations! Pity you couldn’t make it to the ceremony – it was good to meet all the other nominees. Maybe next time

    Matty – I haven’t a clue but I’d be happy with a 88×20 pixel button for me to stick on my sidebar!

    Donncha. I’ll make one for you. It might be just the one colour, but it will definitely be 88×20!

    fix…. fix….

    where’d I leave my soapbox at?

    Mr. Finch, if by your own admission you havent seen the rest of the nominees, perhaps this is a good opportunity to see them?

    Yours Soapboxingly

    And since Ryan forgot to include the shortlist of blogs, here they are:
    Iced Coffee
    Letter to America
    In Photos
    North Atlantic Skyline

    I didn’t forget… I just didn’t bother :p

  • Roger March 31, 2006 Reply

    Thanks for the nice comments Donncha. I was sure you were going to win “best contribution technology-wise”. You would have been a deserved winner. Thank God you’re a great photographer otherwise you might have pipped our category too.
