Independent.ie has been nominated twice for the Digital award at the NNI Journalism Awards.

The country's top news website was recognised in the Digital category for its coverage of 'Lapgate', when Fine Gael TD pulled fellow party member Aine Collins on his lap during the late-night abortion debate in the Dail.

Independent.ie was also nominated, in the same category, for its major part in the biggest story of the year - The Anglo Tapes.

Separately, Independent.ie News Editor Jason O'Brien has been nominated for Best Foreign Coverage for his work in Syria and Independent.ie Journalist Caitlin McBride has been shortlisted in the Young Journalist of the Year category.
