The Irish Book Awards are tonight, folks! And you all know that Eoin was nominee for his debut novel ‘Kingdom of Scars’ and we were voting him during these past weeks in order to get the chance of see him taking the award! What is this, by the way? Well, paying attention at the “about” of their official webpage, it says:

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.

From a small base of three initial categories, the awards now include fifteen categories spanning the literary genres. Thousands of ordinary readers vote to select the winners every year. Libraries and bookshops showcase the best books of the year in the critical sales period of the fourth quarter. The Awards Dinner has become the major event in the literary calendar with Taoisigh and Presidents as guests of honour. Since 2011, highlights of the awards have been shown on RTE television.

Exclusively Irish, inclusive in every other sense, the Bord Gáis Energy Irish Book Awards brings together the entire literary community – readers, authors, booksellers, publishers and librarians – like no other awards. These are your awards – join us in celebrating Irish  writing.

So, what do we know about the ceremony and everything about it for far?

  • First that the ceremony is today, so the winners will be announced as soon as they will know them! Where? We guess via all the social networks like twitter, for example.
  • “Hey! But I don’t know what’s their twitter!” Dont worry pal, you can find them as @BGEIBAS at Twitter or even take a look at the official webpage here.
  • Also, we asked about a livestream link or something ir order to see the ceremony and, hopefully, see Eoin getting his award. BGEIBAS told us that the ceremony will be recorded tonight and it will air on RTE One in a couple of days, more exactly next Saturday 29th, so for all of you that have the chance of watch it on that channel, do it! And for those who can’t because they aren’t from Ireland/England, they’ll give us a link of a livestream of it as soon as it will air!

That’s nice, right? We are expecting tons of pictures and videos about it, and also we have our fingers crossed for ‘Kingdom of Scars’!! Stay tuned guys, we will try to bring you all the news about the ceremony, but you also can follow @BGEBookClub twitter because they will be doing a live comentary that has already started!

Have fun, guys!

Good news folks! It seems that recent interviews Eoin have had with the media bring us the wonderful news about his debut novel ‘Kingdom of Scars’ being turned into a film, obviously directed by Eoin but this time he will not take a proper role in the film! Just the direction of it!


I’m definitely going to make it into a film, it just depends on when. I can’t play the lead character because he’s 15

I’ll definitely be shooting it in Ireland. This is part of why I wrote the book, I wanted to make it into a film and make it here in Ireland

It feels surreal, it’s surreal that people are buying something that I love and enjoying it.

You can read the whole interview here at goss.ie.

Also I’ve added two new pics (and will be adding more soon) about his book launch yesterday afternoon!
