The duo were among 37 recipients of this year’s Fulbright Irish Awards, and were presented with their awards at a ceremony in the US Ambassador’s Residence this week.

“I speak for the entire Fulbright Commission Ireland Board in congratulating the 37 Fulbright awardees on receiving their awards,” said Chair of the Fulbright Commission Ireland Board, Professor Diane Negra.

“Fulbright is synonymous with high-level research, academic excellence and cross-cultural collaboration and I wish the awardees every success as they travel to the US, join a thriving network of professional Alumni, and experience a rich and unique cultural and educational exchange that encompasses a Fulbright award.”
