98FM are looking for people to nominate themselves, other people, places and things in what they’re calling the ultimate Best of Dublin list.

Kathryn Ryan of the station writes:

“Categories include ‘Food and Drink’ , ‘Culture’  and ‘Shops’  but we will also celebrate individual Dubliners which will include best bus driver, bartender, best quintessential ‘dub’, morning person, street artist and trade person. We will then select a shortlist and put it to a public vote. Balloting closes on June 27t, with our Awards Ceremony in Smock Alley On July 2…”
