The late Dr Jennifer O'Reilly, MRIA, FSA, taught Medieval History in University College Cork from 1975 to her retirement in 2008. After her retirement, she continued to teach History of Art in UCC. Her generous spirit and passion for her subject inspired affection and respect in all her students. Her contribution to scholarship was immense and recognised internationally in the fields of history, art history and iconography, theology, patristics, and manuscript studies. To mark Dr O'Reilly's profound contribution to teaching and research in the School of History, University College Cork, a prize fund has been instituted for the annual award of "The Jennifer O'Reilly Prize in Medieval History".
The prize will be awarded in the first instance to the student with the best BA seminar dissertation in Medieval History, achieving at least First Class Honours. In the event of no candidate reaching the required standard in the BA Seminar dissertation in Medieval History, the prize will be awarded to the student with the best written assignment in Third Year Medieval History (3,000 words or above), also achieving at least First Class Honours.
