We were thrilled to have the Irish Examiner sponsor the Journalist of the Year award at this years Smedias.

The Irish Examiner is an institution of journalism in Ireland and has been keeping the Irish people up to date on news from both Ireland and abroad since 1841. Last year, The Irish Examiner had 236,000 people read the newspaper in print or online every day! This huge readership shows that the Irish Examiner is one of the top newspapers in Ireland.

The newspaper has a huge reputation and yet at the same time, are able to recognise the importance of helping promote the next up and coming writers in Ireland.

Congratulations to Aoife Walsh from UCC for winning the prestigious award on the night. To win Journalist of the Year at the Smedias is a fantastic achievement, and to have the award sponsored by one of the biggest newspapers in the country makes it even more impressive!
