Ireland AM Popular Non-fiction Book of the Year

“Non-fiction” covers a multitude of subjects and it was always somewhat anomalous to have sometimes strange bedfellows lumped together in the same category. Accordingly, since 2015 the non-fiction category has been split into non-fiction and popular non-fiction with popular non-fiction, sponsored by Ireland AM, broadly covering areas such as celebrity memoirs, lifestyle, humour and popular culture.
