INMO recognises outstanding members at ADC
Press release 5.5.23


The Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation (INMO) has today (Friday) awarded its annual prizes to members who have made outstanding contributions to the union and its activities over the past year.

The prizes were announced at the INMO’s annual delegate’s conference in Killarney, where over 300 nurses and midwives gathered to debate and discuss matters affecting nursing, midwifery and the wider health service.

This year’s winners:

  • The Gobnait O’Connell award for exceptional contributions to the nurses and midwives’ union was awarded to staff nurse and INMO rep at University Hospital Limerick, Ann Noonan
  • The CJ Coleman research award  was awarded to Louth nurse Leasa Murphy for her project “Exploring the views of recently qualified midwives to determine the factors influencing their clinical placement experience as postgraduate student midwives.”
  • The INMO’s annual Preceptor of the Year award for outstanding mentorship in nursing and midwifery was won by staff nurse Marian McAuliffe of Bantry General Hospital, nominated by student nurse Miriam Hanlon


INMO President and Advanced Nurse Practitioner at Beaumont Hospital, Karen McGowan said:


“These annual prizes are such an important part of the conference and such an amazing opportunity to recognise some of the members who go above and beyond year in and year out.


“The competition for these prizes is always tough because we see so many members looking to nominate their colleagues and teammates and ensure they get the recognition they deserve.


“It’s so inspiring every year to see nurses and midwives striving to get the most out of themselves and their professions, and ensuring the best possible outcomes for their colleagues, their students and their patients.”
