Mrs Angela Cahill has established the Edward P. Cahill Prize, together with the Department of Accounting, Finance and Information Systems and with University support. This prize is to acknowledge the contribution made by her husband Professor Edward Cahill, the first Professor of Accounting at University College Cork, a position he held from 1988 until his death in 2005.
The Prize will be awarded annually and will consist of a medal and a cash prize of circa €750 (depending on the annual income from the fund).

The Edward P. Cahill Prize will be awarded to the student who achieves the highest overall marks in the final year of the BSc Accounting degree.
