If you're fond of a good book, especially by an Irish author, the Bord Gais Energy Irish Book Awards is one of the biggest celebrations of Irish writing and many of Ireland's most celebrated and loved authors will be in attendance. The shortlist features a host of internationally renowned Irish authors including John Banville, Edna O'Brien, Emma O'Donoghue, Joseph O'Connor, Cecelia Ahern, Tana French and Kevin Barry, and a wide range of memoirs from Irish political and sporting figures and of course chefs. Lots of chefs. RTÉ’s Claire Byrne and John Murray will present the event.
