I’m running a bit late with posting this but the 2010 Irish Blog Awards was on Saturday night in Galway and as usual, the night was pretty kick ass. As is the fashion, Rick did a great job as master of ceremonies (even leading the funeral procession into the hall) and kept everything as lively and informal as you’d come to expect.
Despite all the whining that inevitably follows, each of the winners was more than deserving and should at least get a moment to enjoy it before the naysayers come out to play (although special mention goes to Panti for best speech of the evening and making me one very happy boy for getting to meet her).
Beyond that major thanks goes to Damien, who (other than putting up with me) does the rather thankless job of arranging two awards ceremonies every year to remind people of some of the positive elements of the internet and have a laugh doing it. People get to put a face to the blogs and twitter accounts they follow the rest of the year and encounter ideas and information they may not otherwise.
