Siliconrepublic.com beat off intense competition to win the ‘Best Tech Read’ category at the Littlewoods Ireland Blog and Online Publishing Awards 2014 in Dublin last night.
More than 23,000 votes were cast across categories spanning food, travel, motoring, technology, and fashion and beauty, to name a few.
The awards celebrated the flourishing online publishing industry in Ireland.
