Awards: An Post Irish Book Winners

Sally Hayden won the 2022 An Post Irish Book of the Year for My Fourth Time, We Drowned. Her book, which had previously been named Odger's Berndtson Non-Fiction Book of the Year at the recent An Post Irish Book Awards, was among six category winners competing for the overall prize. The book was published in the U.S. by Melville House.

Chair of the judging panel Maria Dickenson said: "My Fourth Time, We Drowned is a moving, compelling and vitally important book. Sally Hayden is an outstanding Irish journalist who has taken her place on the global stage with her incisive journalism, and she has written a book that is as ground-breaking as it is humane. In it, she gives a powerful voice to vulnerable refugees, and holds the highest offices accountable for their plight. The judging panel was unanimous in its praise for My Fourth Time, We Drowned, and is very proud to recognize it as the An Post Irish Book of the Year."
