Bord Gais Energy Irish Book Awards


  [Bord Gais Energy]







The Bord Gáis Energy Irish Book Awards are a set of industry-recognition awards set up by a coalition of Irish booksellers in 2007. The awards are owned by Irish Book Awards Ltd, a not-for-profit company presided over by a board comprising representatives from founding members Eason & Son Ltd, Argosy Wholesale Ltd, International Education Services Ltd, Hughes & Hughes and the Booksellers Association of Ireland. 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.

Eligibility:The book must have been published within the current awards year. The author must be Irish by birth, citizenship or long-term residence. The book must be original, ie neither a reprint nor a translation or adaptation of a previously-published book.
