Irish Blog Awards 2012 — 14 Comments

  1. It is a shame….not that I ever won anything but it was quite exciting to be nominated….I clearly need to get out more.

  2. Val – Indeed it is a shame.  Unfortunately I was only able to make it to two of the ceremonies [in Dublin and Cork] but they were a great chance to meet all the faces behind the pages.  It was a lot of fun and I will miss them.

  3. But the advantage is that one could have one’s own ceremony at which one awarded all of the awards to oneself – a bit like RTE and the IFTAs

  4. Bun fights are fun until the scones start getting chucked about by nasty bastards who think its funny.

  5. Ian – Not a bad idea at all!  I might even award you with one for coming up with the idea? 

    Ranty – Rock buns.  And it is funny.  You calling me a bastard?

    Cat – Not only are the awards defunct but there used to be an excellent couple of sites which aggregated Irish Blogs which are also now gone.  There is a new one – – but I can’t quite make out how it works!

  6. It’s probably why I like you lot so much – you take the piss out of everyone – I’ve enjoyed many a night in the company of some my Irish friends when they’ve started taking the piss out of each other.  Then, when you get personally sucked in to contributing, you realise it’s all a ruse – and you end up as the willing victim.  By then you’re so pissed on the dark stuff, Jamesons or Black Bush (usually a combination of all)  that you don’t give a shite (the latter term being a borrowed one). It’ll be a very sad day when you lot lose your wry sense of humour cause it’ll make the rest of the world a much sadder place.

  7. Ian – If he did then I did’;t throw it.  Honest.  I can provide an alibi if you provide the date.

    Cardi – Us?  Taking the piss?  Never!! We are as pure as the driven snow.  And if you have ever driven snow, you’ll how pure that is. 

    Slab – Thanks for that but there is no election.  And it never ceases to amaze me how you manage to find the least appropriate photographs.  Do you work for the Independent?

    tt – Indeed it is a shame.  There are still loads of web awards, but they are not the same.  Any old fucker can write a web site.

  8. Brilliant!!  Thanks, Noeleen.  A whole seven months to collect ammunition and bribes.
