In 2015 the Institute of Biology of Ireland formulated an annual Memorial Prize & Medal Award, in honour of the late Professor Michael Hennerty, UCD. Professor Hennerty was also a Fellow of the Institute of Biology of Ireland, and dedicated in excess of 20 years to its work.
It was agreed that the prize would be awarded to the undergraduate student with the highest overall GPA in the Horticulture, Landscape and Sportsturf Management degree programme offered at UCD.
In the event of two or more students having the same final GPA the student with the best performance in the HORT 30190 Food Production: Fruit and Post-harvest Physiology will be selected.
The 2015 winner: Mr. Denis Kenny
