Geography is proud to share that our very own Professor Michael O'Connell has been awarded the 2021 Frank Mitchell Award for Distinguished Service to Quaternary Research and Teaching by the Irish Quaternary Association (IQUA). Named for one of the leading figures in Irish Quaternary studies, Michael's award was announced during the IQUA Autumn Symposium (26th November) by his long-time colleague, Walter Doerfler, after which Michael was presented with a magnificent (and heavy!) sculpture of 5000-year old bog yew set upon engraved stone. Congratulations, Michael, and here's to many more years of Quaternary science!
