Vincent Browne handed out his media awards last night (oh, and we got one)

Hurrah!

VINCENT BROWNE DOLED out the prizes last night for the Tonight With Vincent Browne Media Awards 2014, in a departure from his usual annual political awards.

Among the winners was something called TheJournal.ie for Website of the Year. You might have heard of it.

The judges were Independent politicians Senator Marie-Louise O’Donnell and MEP Luke ‘Ming’ Flanagan, along with lecturer at the UCD’s School of Social Justice Marie Moran.

In choosing their winners, Flanagan praised this website, and said ‘a massive amount of news is covered in a format that is very, very readable’.

“I don’t necessarily think they’re biased one way or the other. I’ve heard people accuse them of being left-wing, right-wing, every wing that’s possible.”

O’Donnell praised the “fast and furious” pace of the coverage.
Broadsheet.ie was also commended by the judges.

Other winners included:

Columnist of the Year: Irish Independent’s Gene Kerrigan

Journalist of the Year: Irish Examiner’s Mick Clifford

Newspaper of the Year: The Irish Times

Story of the Year: The coverage of the several controversies in An Garda Síochána, by journalists such as Clifford and John Mooney of the Sunday Times.
