Bord Gais Energy
The Bord GÃ¡is Energy Irish Book Awards are a set of industry-recognition awards set up by a coalition of Irish booksellers in 2007.

The over-riding motivation behind the awards is to celebrate the extraordinary quality of Irish writing, to help bring the best books to a wider readership annually, and to promote an industry under severe competitive pressures.
