'Torthaí na Daoirse'
The awards were founded in 2002 to honour the memory of Fr. Joe Dunn encourage quality documentary production in Ireland, in line with the achievements of Radharc in religious affairs programmes in Ireland from 1962-1997.

Winners were announced at the official biennial ceremony at the Talbot Stillorgan Hotel, Mount Merrion last month, with special guest Olivia O’Leary in attendance.

The overall winner ‘Torhaí na Daoirse’ (Sinead O'Brien) is a documentary chronicling the Dunnes Stores anti-apartheid strike in 1984 when Mary Manning took on her employers.

The lockout which ensued lasted over two years and only ended when the Irish government agreed to implement a complete ban of the import of South African goods until the apartheid regime was overthrown.

The highly commended ‘These Walls Can Talk’ from Mind the Gap Films also received the IFTA for Best Camera at the recent IFTA Gala TV Awards. ‘I Am Immigrant’ from Motive Television, which received the Best Newcomer Award at this year’s ceremony was also recognised with the IFTA for Best Documentary Single this year.
