INM Group Business Editor Dearbhail McDonald has been honoured with the Mary Cummins Award for Women of Outstanding Achievement in Media.

The award was presented at the fifth annual 'Women in Media' conference by former tánaiste Mary Harney.

Ms McDonald said she was "overwhelmed by the honour".

RTÉ 'Prime Time's' political correspondent Katie Hannon also received a Special Merit Award at a gala dinner held at the Kilcooly's Country House Hotel in Ballybunion, Co Kerry.

The conference included talks, workshops and social events and was attended by well-known women from print and broadcast media, like Miriam O'Callaghan, Olivia O'Leary and Sarah Carey.
