The School of History Annual Prize-giving Ceremony, which took place on 3 February in the Aula Maxima, is an annual event celebrating the excellent achievements of students at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. The event provides an opportunity for the staff of the School of History to acknowledge publicly and pay appropriate tribute to the inspiring work of those students. Prizes were awarded to the History Student of the Year in I, II and III Year, as well as at MA level, for work completed in the last academic year. Prizes were similarly awarded to European Studies and History of Art students for achievement at undergraduate level.

The event also provides an opportunity to acknowledge the generosity of the donors and representatives of the families of donors of various other prizes which were also awarded – the John A. Murphy Prize in Irish History, the John B. O’Brien Annual Prize in History, the Leonora Hanrahan Prize in History, the James and Mary Hogan Prize in History, the Jennifer O’Reilly Prize in Medieval History, the J.J Lee History Prize, The Dermot Keogh Prize and the Michael McEnery Memorial Prize. The Polish Ambassador Prize in Polish History was also awarded on behalf of the Polish Ambassador to Ireland. All of these prizes carry considerable prestige.

The ceremony concluded with a presentation by Emeritus Professor Dermot Keogh who discussed the value of studying History in a contemporary and a historic context.  Presentation by Emeritus Professor Dermot Keogh
