Surely in this progressive era it is illegal to have a prize with the word ‘man’ in the title. It should be renamed the ‘Miriam Hederperson O’Brien Prize 2015’. Also, I note the closing date is the day of the referendum. Most unfortunate. Lots of people will be unable to do their civic duty and vote as directed by the Gardai because they’ll be frantically trying to finish off their essays. I trust the courts will show them leniency because of this.
