‘The Bord Gais Energy Irish Book Awards are a superbly run, thoroughly enjoyable event that are a mammoth to organise but are the highlight of the publishing year. High level planning, forethought and time management ensured the 2015 event ran like clockwork and the media build was excellent.” Vanessa Fox O’Loughlin Founder & CEO

“I have attended the Book Awards many times as a writer, bookseller and editor over the years and I’ve always been impressed by the professional yet personal way the ceremony is run. It’s the most important night in the Irish book calendar, one I always look forward to.”  Sarah Webb

“It was a wonderful night for Irish Authors and Irish Books and shows the literary talent that is in Ireland right now!”  Maire Logue, Festival Manager, Listowel Writers’ Week
