TBA congratulates our client Catherine Dunne, who is to receive the 2018 Irish PEN Award for Contribution to Irish Literature. The award will be presented at the Irish PEN Annual Dinner on Friday, February 22 at the Royal St. George Yacht Club, Dún Laoghaire, Co. Dublin.

Dunne said: “I am extremely happy that Irish PEN has chosen to honour me with this award for my contribution to Irish literature. It means a great deal to me at this point in my career. The award for literature is a very special kind of peer recognition and I want to thank the committee for selecting me. Writing is a mostly solitary occupation and sometimes we writers feel invisible. It’s always uplifting to know that our work is out there, making connections with readers and with the writing community all over the country. The February event in Dún Laoghaire is always a great opportunity for us writers to get together. I owe a lot to the Irish writing community: for support, for shared projects and above all, for friendship.”
