IITOS National Orthopaedic Literary Award (NOLA)

Now in it's 4th year, the winner is Miss Grace Buckley 4th Med/SC1 student in Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland Medical School with her short story entitled, 'Matty'.
Roddy Doyle's notes on Grace's short story: 
"A startling and brilliantly realistic story.  I thought at first that the story, and Matty, were going to be smothered by medical terminology.  But, actually, the terminology is a vital part of the story, as Matty emerges from it - so to speak - and starts to talk.  

This is a very clever, powerful, story-telling.
