Malachy wins Pulitzer Prize

Broadford native Malachy Browne, who works with The New York Times, has won the most prestigious accolade in US journalism after being announced as winner of a Pulitzer Prize. Malachy and his team were nominated for an extensive investigation into the regime of Vladimir Putin in Russia, and he becomes the first Limerick native to win a Pulitzer for journalism, though he is no stranger to accolades as he was a member of a team that won an Emmy Award two years ago for an investigative film documentary into the Las Vegas massacre of 2017. He returns to Broadford at least once every year, and in 2019 was named Limerick Person of the Month. His wife Siobhán is a native of Rathkeale. He joined the New York Times in 2016 and works on the paper’s Visual Investigations team.
