Ciaran O’Connor, RIAI President said:
The wide variety of projects included in this year’s shortlist demonstrates the diversity of great work being carried out by Irish architects across the country and further afield. Despite Covid-19 having an impact on construction projects delivered in the last 12 months, we received almost 150 entries for work complete in 2020 and the quality was exceptional.
Dlr’s County Architect Andrée Dargan said:
Good design matters and puts people at the very heart of our public spaces.

I am delighted to see that the efforts of the County Council’s COVID-19 placemaking projects and the valuable contribution that they make to our citizens lives had been recognized in these prestigious awards.
