Ireland’s technology news service siliconrepublic.com was recognised on Saturday night as ‘Best Technology Website’ at the inaugural Moviestar Irish Web Awards.

At a fun-packed ceremony at the SAS Radisson Hotel in Dublin’s city centre, 2FM DJ Rick O’Shea did his best to manage an excited crowd of over 300 people – including a red bewigged, head-banging team from Spunout.ie – as the strictly non-blacktie event unfolded.

As one of only two people in a penguin outfit, Damien Mulley’s organisational abilities were evident at what can only be described as the fastest-paced awards ceremony Ireland has to offer, even if you include speeches.

But every rose has its thorn; the event was running ahead of schedule until the laptop powering the slides went kaput. Mulley yesterday assured the blogosphere that it was not caused a Windows error but he himself knocking out the power.
