Doctor of Letters conferred in honour of the singer's 57-year music career.

Singer and songwriter Paul Brady has been conferred with an honorary doctorate by the University of Limerick (3 November). The Doctor of Letters was awarded to honour and celebrate his musical career over 57 years and also acknowledges his contribution to UL as a patron of the university’s Blas International Summer School of Irish Music and Dance.

Honorary doctorates were also awarded to former Minister Michael Noonan, diplomat and former Ambassador of Ireland to the United States Anne Anderson, and President and CEO of GE Aviation John Slattery.

Brady will perform a solo concert at the National Concert Hall next week on 13 November as part of the Refractions series, with special guest Anna Krantz. In January, he will tour with Andy Irvine to mark the 45th anniversary of their classic album together. Brady’s most recent album release is Unfinished Business from 2017.

In 2015, Brady received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Concert Hall and in 2009 a Doctor of Letters from the University of Ulster.
