An Post Irish Books Award An Post Irish Books Award

The School of Law was delighted to see our alumnus, Donal Ryan,  winning the An Post Irish Book Awards Irish Novel of the Year award for his book 'Strange Flowers'! Speaking on his achievement, Ryan said "I’m really grateful to people who took the trouble to vote for Strange Flowers, that’s the great thing about these awards – the winners are decided by readers, and readers are the reason we write... Strange Flowers is a very personal book about love, loss, family and identity, set in my heartland and home. It’s a privilege and an honour for me to have a readership for something that means so much to me, and to have it endorsed by readers in this wonderful way".
