"Superb reporting from what we all know to have been a difficult and demanding trial"

The Law Society singled out his regular conversations with veteran Newstalk broadcaster as "superb reporting from what we all know to have been a difficult and demanding trial."
"In particular, the format of a highly skilled court reporter in conversation with one of Ireland's most experienced broadcasters is highly effective and listener friendly while retaining a very sharp focus on accuracy and balance."
The annual awards celebrate the best in Irish legal journalism.
