John A. Delaney Memorial Prize Giving
The School of Physics would like to congratulate the Undergraduate students who won the John A. Delaney Memorial prize in 2021, 2022 & 2023.
A prize is awarded to commemorate Dr. John A. Delaney, College Lecturer in Physics from 1971 until his untimely death in 1999 each year.
The prize, which consists of a certificate and the sum of €127 is awarded to an undergraduate student who has the best performance in Physics on their summer examination in their first year of study. The minimum qualifying standard is First Class Honours, or 70% aggregate marks, in the Honours Physics course module and the award is selected annually by examiners.
Due to covid, on 20/09/2023, we got to celebrate the prize winners for the past three years and here they are:

A very well done to all and we wish them the best of luck with their future studies and chosen career paths.
