Crime reporter honoured by UCD
One of the nation's top crime journalists, Paul Williams, has been honoured with lifetime membership of the UCD Law Society for his contributions to journalism.
The Irish Independent's Special Correspondent was honoured at an event in Dublin last night where he delivered a "captivating and often nerve-racking account" of his immensely successful career to date.
Williams was then presented with a certificate by the Society's auditor James Green in recognition of his work "exposing the underbelly of Ireland's criminal underworld."
Throughout his stellar career he has broken some of the country's most explosive stories, including the Anglo Tapes.
As a respected author, he has also penned several books, including his latest work: 'Almost the perfect murder - The killing of Elaine O'Hara'.
He has also appeared in several TV special investigations, including 'Dirty Money: The Story of the Criminal Assets Bureau.'
