A special mention also to Eoin Lettice from the Communicate Science blog and Ronan Palliser from our favourite photo blog who are also nominated within the Big Mouth category. Eoin has also been a guest blogger on the Frog Blog - click here to read his guest post - and is a brilliant ambassador for science in Ireland. It is brilliant to see two blogs within this category that are shouting for science!
