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

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!


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?

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 […]
