After taking place last Wednesday, the Bord Gais Energy Irish Book Awards is being broadcast tonight. The awards celebrate the very best in Irish literary talent, and an array of bestsellers and media personalities are in attendance, including Marian Keyes, Graham Norton, Paul Howard, Sebastian Barry, Donal Ryan, Marita Conlon McKenna, Roddy Doyle, Cecelia Ahern, Fintan O’ Toole, Gay Byrne, Jason Byrne, and Pippa O’ Connor.

Whether you want to see your favourite authors and books awarded, or want to get some recommendations for what to read next, this show is primarily geared towards passionate readers. Sure there wouldn’t be much point in the awards without them.
