Pyle Postgraduate Bursary
L-R:, Martina Devlin, Jarlath Killeen, and Mary Pyle
Congratulations to Martina Devlin who was announced as the 2019 recipient of the Pyle Postgraduate Bursary in Trinity on the 17th September. A bursary of €15,000 is awarded on a competitive basis to a final-year PhD student in English and is supported by Sheelagh O’Neill in memory of her grandfather William Fitzroy Pyle (1907-1989).
Fitzroy Pyle was a professor and central figure in the Department of English at Trinity College Dublin. He was a scholar of Renaissance English Literature, with a particular interest in Shakespeare and Milton.
Martina Devlin is a student of the PhD in Literary Practice programme, working under the co-supervision of Dr Carlo Gébler and Dr Paul Delaney. Martina's work on her PhD in Literary Practice, and this award, affirm both the School's commitment to Creative Writing practice and Martina's success to date as a brilliant postgraduate student.
