ITAA Congratulates Eoghan Corry on Business Travel Journalist of the Year Award
Dublin, 9th October 2015 The Irish Travel Agents Association (ITAA) is delighted to congratulate Eoghan Corry, Travel Extra Editor, on being awarded “Business Travel News Journalist of the year” at the Business Travel Journalism Awards 2015 held in London yesterday evening. Eoghan took the top accolade for his coverage of International Airlines Group’s (IAG) takeover of Aer Lingus.
Pat Dawson, CEO of the ITAA said “The ITAA is pleased to congratulate Eoghan Corry on winning the Business Travel Journalist of the Year Award. We have worked with Eoghan for many years and are delighted that his work in the travel industry has been recognised. Eoghan handled the story of the IAG takeover of Aer Lingus with delicacy and care and signified its importance in Irish history.”
Eoghan said: “To become the first Irish journalist to win against such esteemed international opposition at the Business Travel Journalism Awards is a humbling and extremely gratifying experience. It was particularly satisfying that the judges made their selections without knowing who they were selecting and the decision was unanimous in my favour. I hope I will be followed on to the podium by other Irish travel and business journalists in the coming years.”
The awards, organised by Carlson Wagonlit Travel, celebrate quality media coverage of the business travel, meetings and events industries. The award’s entries were judged anonymously by a panel of journalists and independent industry experts. The awards, currently in their twelfth year, have become a must-attend event for journalists and industry representatives.
