For many years The O'Brien Press has been winning awards, underlining the emphasis on quality in our books.Our children's books have been particularly successful over recent years, both in Ireland and abroad.
The O'Brien Press has been singled out for exceptional recognition in the field of children's publishing by the Reading Association of Ireland. The RAI Special Merit Award 1997 was presented to publisher Michael O'Brien with a citation which read "for exceptional care, skill and professionalism in publishing, resulting in a consistently high standard in all of the children's books published by The O'Brien Press".
This is the first time ever that the prestigious award has gone to a publisher rather than to a specific book and it recognises the overall quality of the children's books produced by The O'Brien Press over the years.
Here is a selection of awards for individual O'Brien Press titles:
