The Republic (in spite of its poor broadband rollout) is edging ahead of Northern Ireland both in terms of the range and quality of its blogging output and it’s proper recognition by the mainstream. Seoighe and O’Shea had a roster of bloggers on yesterday afternoon (kindly YouTubed by Red Mum). It features bloggers Sinéad Gleeson, Una Mullaly, and Simon McGarr. The Award ceremony is on Friday 3rd March in the Alexander Hotel, Dublin.
