...there's both eatin' and drinkin' in it

Spud Sunday: Winner Alright

Irish blog award 2011

Meet the gong

It all happened so quickly.

Seemed like the food and drink category finalists were name-checked and the winner announced while we were still settling into the auditorium at the Europa Hotel, venue for last night’s Irish Blog Awards.

And there was my name. Again.

Magic, it was. Pure magic.

  28. keith egan

    CONGRATULATIONS! Totally deserved, though, and if they had a Fields Medal for Food blogs, you’d be the good willing hunting of the internet…or something..!! Brilliant that your humour and talent have been recognised by people previously your peers!! Big Spuddy Hurrah!!

  29. Jenni

    Congratulations!!!! I am thrilled for you–what a well-deserved award. Not to take anything away from the other great food bloggers, mind you, but I did know you first. Not that there’s a correlation. Or *is* there?! ;)

    Hooray for you, DS!!!

  30. Daily Spud

    Keith: well, it would be more than appropriate if they had a Field Medal for Spud Blogs – I’d be a shoe-in :)

    Jenni: y’know, I think you could be on to something there – it sure smells like a correlation to me, hee hee!
