(1915-67) was an actor who played many roles in his native Ireland, including The Abbey Theatre in Dublin, and on Broadway in New York and in The Quare Fellow and other films, but is best remembered for his writing.
The distinctions were awarded in 2005 marking the 75th anniversary of Taibhdhearc na Gaillimhe, the national Irish language theatre in Galway City, in memory of Walter Macken

During her 2008 trial, the court heard how Black stabbed neighbour John Malone in the chest in the Walter Macken
flats in Mervue, Co Galway.
McCormick (whose real name was Peter Judge), reckoned by many theatre historians and indeed many of his peers to have been the greatest Abbey actor of all time: in 1935 Joseph Holloway declared that "[he] was perhaps the greatest actor in the world." However, notwithstanding his thirty-year involvement with the Abbey [1917-1947], his splendid realization of a very wide range of characters, from Oedipus to Joxer Daly (McCormick's was and still remains the definitive interpretation of that role) to Mungo in Walter Macken
's Mungo's Mansions, and his matchless portrayal of Shell in the Carol Reed film, Odd Man Out (1947), very little of this great artist's work appears to have survived in accessible form.
Chief Justice John Murray said Black, of Walter Macken
Flats in Mervue, Co Galway, had left her flat armed with a knife to confront Mr Malone without justification.
The judge said Black "equipped herself with a knife" before going to the victim's home at Walter Macken
Flats, Mervue, Galway, and the manslaughter merited a 12-year sentence.
