KPMG Ireland have established the Deirdre O'Sullivan Memorial Prize in Accounting to honour the memory of Deirdre O’Sullivan, a graduate of UCC, who qualified as a Chartered Accountant with KPMG and who sadly passed away in September 2011. KPMG have agreed to give the University an annual sum of €1,000 and a medal for the provision of the prize, on the following terms:

  • The prize shall be called "The Deirdre O’Sullivan Memorial Prize in Accounting".
  • The prize of €1,000 shall be awarded annually to the Master of Accounting student who receives the highest final aggregate mark on the programme at his/her first attempt.
  • That in the event of a tie involving two or more qualified students, the aggregate marks accumulated up to and including the Summer examinations only will be used to determine the overall winner from those who are involved in the tie.

Note: These awards are funded from endowments made by the respective donors to the University for awards to be made in perpetuity. The funds donated are invested, and the annual income is the amount available for the award. Due to fluctuation in the investment market, the amounts available from year to year may vary, upwards and downwards; for this reason, the value of any award referred to in this section is indicative only, and may be higher or lower when the amount of the award is completed.
