Doh! The Irish Blog Awards…forgotten
Did I mention that I was a bit dotty with dates recently? I’m raging that I managed to MISS the Irish Blog Awards, thinking that it was on next weekend. It actually took place last night and I only discovered when I did a wander around the Irish blogosphere this morning. Although I’m disappointed that I didn’t manage to make it along, it was great to see that some of my favourite bloggers were among the winners. Take a bow Ice Cream Ireland (Best Business Blog, Best Specialist Blog), Conor for Best Blog Post (You may feel a small prick), the lovely ladies at Beaut.ie (Best Design and Best Newcomer) and The Sigla Blog (Best Arts and Culture). Congratulations all!

Thanks Caroline. Hope we all make it to the next one!
Are you sure you’re not pregnant? 🙂 Honestly, I’ve turned into a scatterbrain in the last few months (losing things, walking into rooms and forgetting what I went in for, etc).It’s a shame you missed it, Conor was there representing for food blogs and the Ice Cream Ireland chaps did very well. Delighted for Kirstie too, who was looking fab and putting the rest of us to shame.
I don’t think that I can use that excuse, Sinéad – it’ll just have to go down to general not-being-entirely-clued-in-ness! Glad to hear that it was such a good night.
Just had a look at some of the winning blogs and, no disrespect to the winners, but you were robbed!
If this food blogger had eaten something since lunchtime he wouldn’t have got so polluted so quickly. Walter had the right idea and went to Yamamori with his wife.
Thanks Anna but I do think the winner in my category – Ice Cream Ireland – definitely deserved his trophy, plus that bottle of specially labeled champagne from Bubble Brothers!Sounds like you had a Particularly Good Night, Conor. How was the head on Sunday?!
ello you better not be dottie with dates next month…..3rd of april!!!!!
Don’t worry little sis, I’ve got your birthday in my diary!
