Mr O’Brien, whose research on the fiction of Philip Roth and Edna O'Brien is being supervised by Dr Maureen O'Connor and Dr Lee Jenkins, is the second student from UCC to take up the Murphy Irish Exchange Fellowship. It was established in 2012 to promote research in Irish Studies through a greater understanding between graduate students at Notre Dame and University College Cork.
