Béal na Bláth Centenary Project in Cork has been awarded second place in the Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland (RIAI) Public Choice Awards. Designed in collaboration with Cork County Council CPIU Architects and Professor Finola O'Kane, the new memorial delivers unbiased interpretation of Michael Collins death, maximising accessibility for daily visitors and commemorative crowds.
The Award recognises the quality of the architecture, while also recognising that the design incorporated engagement and feedback from members of the public. Béal na Bláth Centenary Project was also commended for the sensitivity with which it deals with this historic topic, noted as a beautiful and reflective space to visit. Congratulations to our colleagues at Níall McLaughlin Architects on their first-place award for the International Rugby Experience in Limerick, and to Henry J Lyons, who were awarded third place for their design of IPUT Real Estate Dublin’s Tropical Fruit Warehouse in Dublin.
Thank you to everyone who took the time to vote.
