Belfast author Anna Burns won the prestigious Man Booker Prize for fiction last night with 'Milkman', a vibrant, violent story about men, women, conflict and power set during Northern Ireland's years of Catholic-Protestant violence.
Burns is the first writer from the North to win the £50,000 (€57,000) prize, which is open to English-language authors from around the world.
She received her trophy from Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, during a black-tie ceremony at London's medieval Guildhall.
'Milkman' is narrated by a young woman dealing with an older man who uses family ties, social pressure and political loyalties as weapons of sexual coercion and harassment, set in the 1970s.
Nine years ago today (16th October 2009) the Showgrounds was inaugurated by An Taioseach Brian Cowen, TD.

After significant research and development, ISPCC Childline is proud to introduce to you our new campaign: Talking Makes us Stronger – featuring Headbomz: a brain-poppingly fun way to remind children that talking builds emotional resilience.
Headbomz describe the indescribable; the things that might make children feel like their head is going to burst. The questions, thoughts, worries or feelings that they don’t quite know how to deal with or talk about. By describing these as Headbomz, we can start more conversations about how to get rid of them.
