The first of the long lists for the 2008 Irish Web Awards (Fall in love with the web again).

I’ve spied the Playlist Mix (Best Podcaster) and Kilkenny Music (Best Music) amongst the list of exceedingly good Irish web sites and resources.

Once again though, as in the case of the Blog Awards, these long lists are opening my eyes to other sites and resources I’m either unaware of or just don’t get to enjoy all that often. So while it’s certainly welcoming to see two of my internet babies on the long list, it’s great to have the eyes opened up to more great Irish websites.

Registration to attend the awards, taking place on October 11th in Dublin, will open soon.

    Should be a good night indeed. I’m also going to see about ducking off after the awards. We’re promoting a gig in Whelan’s that night as well – Peter Mulvey (USA) and Clive Barnes, who you saw in action in Kilkenny.

    A night of awards and music certainly on the cards…

    I’ll be running from a stage production in Drumcondra out to the awards (might a smidge late) but would love to see Clive again – loved the mix of mad stories and great guitar last time. Lookin’ forward to it.

    It’ll be interesting to see if any of the stories from the tour earlier this summer (with Jeff Lang – myself and Ross went along for a few nights) make it into the night. Some right gems in there!

    Hoping to drag Costigan along to Dublin for the night as well. Just have to get booking for a place to stay!
