ULCTNI awarded Irish Studies book award

As if the launches of Unionists, Loyalists and Conflict Transformation in Northern Ireland were not fun and rewarding enough, we learned on Saturday that the book has been awarded the 2012 Donald Murphy Book Prize for Distinguished First Book by the American Conference for Irish Studies, which is meeting in New Orleans at Tulane University this week. Again, I’m grateful for all who supported and participated in the research. These are the folks who do the real work of creating sophisticated social worlds and living complex lives together (and sometimes apart). We can only try to do justice to the richness of their lived experience.
