Pakistani student Malala Yousafzai is the latest recipient of the Tipperary International Peace Award.
The 16-year-old was attacked by Taliban gunmen last October after she campaigned for girls rights for education.
Malala is also a nominee for this year's Nobel Peace Prize.
Last month, Malala addressed the United Nations and urged young people to use education as a weapon against extremism.
