The Irish Blog Awards 2008 – The Aftermath

Great night, great crowd, A whole hearted success and our congratulations go out Damien for another cracking night. Maman Poulet has produced a beautiful page of the winners that far exceeds my humble HTML skills so swing over there for the authoritative list.

This was the year when the real world took over from the geeks with people like GrannyMar and HeadRambles sweeping all before them. In fact the only techno geek to feature was Robin Blandford under the best technology blog moniker for his ByteSurgery blog.

Myself and Pat Phelan raced each other to get the results out on twitter and live blogged them (feeling a little quaint all the while!). I think the organisers might do this themselves in the future with prepared post that reveals itself as the annoucements are made. I was trying to type and chase links while the same time failing horribly to work out the name of the best irish blog.

There is a tagged record of the night in pictures on

A top night, my congratulations to all the winners!
