We are delighted to annunce that we won the IFTA 2013 for Best Reality Series with our home grown format Jockey Eile, beating off the big heavyweight shows Masterchef, Come Dine With Me and ICA Bootcamp.
In a very tough and competitive category we were chuffed to get the nomination but winning has just been suchh a great boost to us.
Pierce Boyce received the award on behalf of the team and was joined on stage by Brid Seoighe (Co-Producer) Sean Ban Breathnach (Presenter), Cathal Watters (Director), Adrian Ferry (Head of Post Production in Abu) and one fo the show participants Finian Coughlan (the bald guy who kept falling off !!)
The Hardy Bucks presented the award and a late but great night was had by all at the after party in the Convention Centre and back at the GIbson Hotel until the wee small hours.
This was Abú Media's 5 consecutive year to be nominated for projects and we are looking to bag a few more next year with our latest raft of productions.
You can view all the award winners here on RTE player (be warned the show is 1 hour 50 mins and you don't get to our category until 1 hour 32 mins so hit fast forward to get to the best bit!) It is available on RTE player only until Saturday 16th February.
