Irish Book Awards - What a Night!!!!



A fantastic night at the Irish Book Awards, and a totally new experience for me, as has been most of 2012!!! 

Huge congrats to Tana French for winning the Ireland AM Crime Fiction Award with Broken Harbour - and respect and good wishes to all my fellow writers in this category, Niamh O'Connor, Benjamin Black, Laurence O Bryan and Declan Burke.

Sorry not to have taken more pics or done more tweeting on the night - note to self, must get better at these things!! But a glorious night, and one I will remember for a very long time.

Hope you enjoy this small selection of pics, and HUGE THANKS for all your support - another amazing part of this whole experience!!!
