Gallery: 98FM Best of Dublin Awards

by Mark O'Brien

A wide cross-section of Dublin businesses and individuals had a moment in the limelight courtesy of Dublin’s 98FM recently, which gathered together lots of winners in its Best of Dublin awards.

Following great feedback from the general public, the fifth annual Best of Dublin awards had 16 different categories to nominate in, with everything from bus drivers to bars to consider.

The night at the Royal Hospital Kilmainham saw 16 winners named from the more than 80 finalists, with them all delighted to take home a prestigious Best of Dublin award to hang up in their business – or even just to be a big talking point with friends, families and customers.

The awards, held in association with Des Kelly Carpets, were a big hit with everyone, setting a very high standard for next year’s nominees to match.
