“It was a great pleasure to direct the 2023 Annual Registrar’s Prize meeting again this year. The day presented itself as a wonderful opportunity to connect with colleagues, and showcase the collaborative work across neurology disciplines in Ireland. Once again, the quality and calibre of the presentations, were exceptionally high across the board, and all should be very proud of their submissions. I congratulate both overall winners in each category, and would encourage all to consider taking their work further, either on to publication, or submission to a national or international meeting”. – Dr. Karen O’Connell, Registrar’s Prize Meeting Director
