Irish Book Awards

Micheál Ó Muircheartaigh & illustrated by Graham Corcoran

Micheál Ó Muircheartaigh, the ‘voice of Gaelic games’, has the record for the longest career as a live match commentator, from 1949 to 2010. His unique style and endless passion for the GAA have kept us enthralled all these years, transmitting the electricity of live matches through the airwaves.

Graham Corcoran is an illustrator and animation designer based in Dublin. The first children’s book he illustrated, Dare to Dream by Sarah Webb, was nominated for an Irish Book Award in 2019. He has also designed animated series for RTÉ, BBC and Nick Jr.
