NUI AWARDS FOR SENIOR SCHOLARS

Irish Historial Research Prize

Colmán Ó Clabaigh, BA, PhD
NUIG
for The Friars in Ireland, 1224-1540 published by Four Courts Press in 2012.

Dr Colmán Ó Clabaigh was awarded the NUI Irish Historical Research Prize for The Friars in Ireland, 1224-1540, published in 2012 by Four Courts Press. This prestigious prize of €5,000 is offered in alternate years for the best work of original Irish historical research by a graduate of the National University of Ireland. The Selection Panel for the prize was drawn from the community of historians in the NUI universities.
 
Commenting on Dr Ó Clabaigh’s book, the Selection Panel noted that ‘this book reflects impressive research covering a time span of over three hundred years. Given the fragmentary nature of the source material, Colmán Ó Clabaigh provides a wonderfully evocative and intimate vision of the lives of the communities of friars in Ireland.  It blends the evidence he himself draws from literary sources with what has been gleaned by archeological, architectural, environmental and folkloric scholars. The linguistic capabilities shine through’.

Dr Ó Clabaidh wrote the book while he was a research fellow of the Mícheál Ó Cléirigh Institute, UCD.

 

NUI Publications Prize in Irish History

John Cunningham, BA, PhD   NUIG
for Conquest and Land in Ireland:  The Transplantation to Connacht, 1649-1680
published in 2011 by Royal Historical Society, Boydell Press.

The NUI Publication Prize in Irish History was awarded to Dr John Cunningham for The Transplantation to Connacht, 1649-1680, published in 2011 by the Royal Historical Society, Boydell Press. This prize of €3,000 was awarded for a first sole author book by an NUI scholar whose doctoral degree was awarded no earlier than 1 January 2005.
 
Commenting on Dr Cunningham’s book, the Selection Panel noted that ‘in a work of fine scholarship, John Cunningham brings new insight to the period of the transplantation to Connacht 1649-1680. Engaging with existing historiography, he handles complex materials well and with admirable compassion. His interpretation is meticulous, solidly grounded and calibrated’.
