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! 🙂
More .. pictures on Flickr, and a video of the proceedings too!

Nice one Donn. Well done!
Congats, Donncha, well done!!
Hooray! Congrats to you! :o)
Thanks lads, much appreciated!
Congratulations, Donncha! Yes 🙂
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!
Hey, Congrats Donncha! it was a great night. Too bad you couldnt be there.
Congratulations Donncha – it was a fantastic night, sorry you missed it
Congrats again Donncha – well deserved – shame you couldn’t be there.
Donncha. I’ll make one for you. It might be just the one colour, but it will definitely be 88×20!
Congrats… now for the world!
Congratulation, Donncha. Keep up the good work and keep all the good photos flowing out of your photoblog here 🙂 Next stop, the world? 😉
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?
And since Ryan forgot to include the shortlist of blogs, here they are:
Letter to America
North Atlantic Skyline
I didn’t forget… I just didn’t bother :p
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.
[…] the only event that marred what was a great year in 2006. The main reason I didn’t attend the Irish Blog Awards last year was because Jacinta was pregnant at the time and the pregnancy wasn’t going so […]
[…] several categories and you can nominate your favourite Irish blog in whichever one fits. In Photos won Best Photoblog last year but this is the only time I’ll mention the awards here unlike last […]
