Four Irish projects have won awards in the 2013 RIBA Awards. Two projects have won awards in the European category: House on Mount Anville, Dublin by Aughey O'Flaherty Architects and University of Limerick Medical School and Pergola Bus Shelter by Grafton Architects.

Heneghen Peng's acclaimed Giant's Causeway Visitor Centre in Co. Antrim and the MAC, Belfast by Hackett Hall McKnight have won awards in the Northern Ireland category.

Speaking today, RIBA President Angela Brady said: "Risk-taking is not for the faint-hearted in recessionary times, but amongst this year’s crop of truly exceptional buildings, I am delighted to see such a variety of projects doing just that."

The shortlist for the coveted RIBA Stirling Prize for the best building of the year will be drawn from the 52 RIBA National and EU Award winners (43 buildings in the UK and 9 buildings elsewhere in the EU). The RIBA Stirling Prize is awarded to the architects of the building that has made the greatest contribution to British architecture in the past year.  The prize will be presented on Thursday 26 September at Central St Martins in London.
