Ms O'Regan was nominated for a series of articles probing how the funds outsourced to non-profit organisations to provide services for people with disabilities by the Health Service Executive are spent and how executives are paid.
She was presented with the award by Inclusion Ireland chairwoman Frieda Finlay, chief executive Deirdre Carroll and Avril Webster, who nominated the journalist.
