Damien Mulley writes:

“A team of over 80 judges have, over the past month, judged and rejudged over 550 Irish websites to come up with a lists of finalists across 33 categories. Media organisations including The Irish Times, The Irish Independent,The Star, Irish Mirror, Irish Examiner, Q102, 98FM, Spin 1038, Spin South West and Broadsheet have all reached the Final of the Realex Fire Web Awards, now in their 7th year.

….The Realex Fire Web Awards are the only website awards event inIreland where nominations are free, the general public judge the sites, sponsors can’t win and where entry on the night is a fraction of the cost of more formal events. These factors combine to make it a very diverse event  and why the volume of nominations and attendees is so high.”


The awards are on October 22 in the Ballsbridge Hotel presented by 2FM’s Rick O’Shea. We’ve been invited.
