Friday, 2 November 2012 wins Best Website Award 2012

A very well dome to who won the Best Website in Ireland award. Here is a lovely update from them they sent us today. :- win Grand Prix Award for Best Website in Ireland at the Irish Web Awards, Eircom Spider Award Best News & Entertainment Website & Best Entertainment Website in Ireland at the Irish Web Awards in one night.

As one of our followers put it on Twitter a few hours ago, "So basically won the internet tonight? Grand."

Picture the scene... On one side of the city, in the Convention Centre, we were winning the eircom Spider Award for Best News and Entertainment Website. Meanwhile, over on the other side of the city in the Mansion House, we were accepting Best Entertainment Website in Ireland at the Web Awards. Then we only won the bleedin' Grand Prix Award making us officially the Best Website in all the land.

Winning these awards this year – a year that saw us reach a new high of 1,000,000 viewers a month, along with a site redesign, and our 15th birthday – couldn't come at a better time. It sends a clear signal that we can be trusted to deliver the best entertainment news on a daily basis. To say we’re absolutely delighted is a bit of an understatement.

Now, here’s where things start to really get embarrassing. Here is the team. These fine folk, along with our siblings in Fusio, the dashing sorts in Electric Media, all our clients, and - most importantly - the viewers are responsible for this site.
