It’s a hat trick as Siliconrepublic picked up the ‘Best Technology Website’ award for the third year running at the Irish Web Awards 2010 this weekend.

The site began publishing technology news from Ireland to the web in October 2002.

Compiled by award-winning technology journalists, this site provides consistent and insightful coverage of the nation’s knowledge economy. The site, alongside sister titles Digital Ireland, E-Thursdsay and E-Monday, provides an unparalleled overview of the evolving Irish and international technology landscape.

Siliconrepublic editor John Kennedy accepted the award at a packed Mansion House on Saturday night and paid tribute to everyone who worked on the site over the past eight years and dedicated the award to the site’s first sub-editor Linda Gillett who sadly passed away during the summer after a two year battle with cancer.

More than 120 judges dedicated time and effort to judging some 500 websites that were nominated.
