"No one in Ireland will be surprised at the recognition which has been given across the Atlantic of the work of Fintan O'Toole, through his award of the 2024 Robert B. Silvers prize for journalism.

As the judges have identified, Fintan's political commentary and cultural and historical scholarship have been of the highest quality over a number of decades.

While the Silvers-Dudley prizes have only been awarded for three years to date, they have already established themselves as respected prizes for outstanding achievement in the areas of Journalism, Arts Writing and Literary Criticism.

May I send my congratulations to Fintan O'Toole on this thoroughly deserved recognition."
