The Arts Council has expressed its regret at the passing of Irish author Val Mulkerns.

Mulkerns penned several acclaimed novels including "A Time Outworn" and "The Summerhouse".

Her work was recognised in 1984 when she won the AIB Prize for Literature.

Chair of organisation, Sheila Pratschke, believes the Aosdána member "leaves behind a rich legacy, and will be greatly missed."
