The Irish Film & Television Awards...

There were some doubters in the Irish media to whether the Irish Film and Television Awards would be a success but with a massive celebrity turn out the night was a blast...

Stuart Townsend and Charlize Theron

Both homegrown and international stars of the big and small screen descended on Dublin over the weekend to attend the first ever Irish Film and Television Awards.


And it was Irish films Veronica Guerin and Intermission which won the major awards with Colin Farrell winning Best Actor - all voted for by the public.

Anna Friel and Ray Winston

Acclaimed Film director Neil Jordan was also given a lifetime achievement award for his work on such movies as A Company of Wolves, The Crying Game, Interview with the Vampire, The Butcher Boy, and many more.

Eddie Irvine and TnaG's Hector

The major theme amongst winner's speeches on the night was the impending budget - it is rumoured that the tax incentives that attract movie-makers here will be abolished.

Anna Friel and Samantha Morton

The only real disappointment on the night was the absence of Dubliner Colin Farrell, but he had a very good excuse - he is on set in Morocco filming Alexander The great and is seeing his newly born son James for the first time this weekend.

Samantha Mumba and Louis Walsh

After the awards show many of the stars went on to The Clarence Hotel but the younger celebrities including Westlife and Samantha Mumba went to Renards nightclub.
