A young Co Clare man has been nominate for a Blog award and is the first person from the county to be nominated in three different categories.

Patrick has been nominated in the best social media page; best newcomer blog, and the best lifestyle blog categories in the Beauty Blog Awards.

Speaking to the Clare Herald, Patrick said: “I know that I am up against some of the biggest bloggers in Ireland, it will be such an honour to attend the awards night and get to meet them all.”

“I set up the blog about 2 months ago ( as a way to write about the daily things in my life. I have been getting great feedback from my followers about my new blog and many well wishes from my followers. I first started out by posting videos to my Facebook like page so I decided it would be good to write about the things that I would normally post videos about,” he said.
