Now that the 2011 Awards are imminent (see post below), I have to return the very nice indeed Eilis Dillon Award glass sculpture I won last year. It has taken pride of place in the Burke living room over the past twelve months. I'll miss it but I know it will be passed on to a more than worthy recipient this year.
All is not wailing and gnashing of teeth however as I do get to keep this rather magnificent piece of crystal which I also got to commemorate the award.
Photo probably doesn't do it justice and, yes I know, I made the rookie mistake of capturing the reflection of the photographer when I took it!!
