Best-selling novelist Jilly Cooper will be honoured at this year’s Bord Gáis Energy Irish Book Awards ceremony in the presence of a host of celebrated Irish authors representing the very best of Irish fiction, poetry, crime, sport, food, children’s and non-fiction genres.
Tony Doherty was instrumental in setting up the Bloody Sunday Justice Campaign in 1992, which led in 2010 to the exoneration of his father and the others killed and wounded on Bloody Sunday, and to a public apology from the British Prime Minister in the House of Commons. His book, 'This Wee Man's Boy, is out now and tells the inspiring story of life in a working class Catholic family in Derry during the troubles.
