Congratulations to Neil Jordan for scooping this year’s Kerry Group Irish Fiction Award – worth €15000.
And in case you didn’t realise, Neil is one of the few Irish authors to have won this prestigious prize twice since the award commenced.
At the opening event, the newly appointed Minister for Arts, Heritage and Gaeltacht Affairs, Mr Jimmy Deenihan, described Listowel Writers Week as “a literary vision for the future…” which “continues to promote the emerging writer, acknowledge the successful writer and celebrate the great”.
Congratulations from everyone at Listowel, Neil.
You can hear Neil Jordan read from his award-winning book on Thursday June 2nd in The Plaza Centre.
