The Round Room at the Mansion House was the setting as representatives of some of Ireland’s best-known companies, members of the media, politicians and special guests came together to enjoy an evening of celebrating excellence in consumer value and service.

Once the 250 black-tie clad guests settled into their seats, consumer broadcasting legend, Joe Duffy took to the stage to open proceedings.

Peter McVerry Trust was our chosen charity for the second year running. We have huge admiration for their incredible work in providing support to Ireland’s homeless population.
Brian Friel, National Director of Services with the Trust, gave a fantastic speech before Joe Duffy hosted a dramatic charity auction.
We were delighted to have two VIP tickets to Electric Picnic (kindly provided by Electric Ireland), two Champions League tickets (kindly provided by eir) and an Irish rugby jersey signed by the 2004 Triple Crown winning team (kindly provided by Fintech Innovations) to auction. Every cent raised will go to Peter McVerry Trust.
On behalf of the entire bonkers.ie team, I would like to thank each and every person who attended the awards ceremony for making it such a special occasion.
I would also like to thank our partners for supporting the awards this year. We place tremendous value on the relationships have with our partners and we looking forward to continuing to work side-by-side in helping Irish consumers benefit from the competition and choice that’s available in the marketplace.
