NOMINATIONS for an award scheme honouring Galway’s community champions closes on Tuesday (April 16th).

The Cathaoirleach’s Awards 2024 is a joint venture between Galway County Council and the Public Participation Network (PPN), which has over 1,300 member groups carrying out a range of community and voluntary activities across Galway.

Official recognition is provided under the annual scheme to individuals and groups who have had a significant impact on the quality of life in communities across Co Galway.

Winners will be announced by the Cathaoirleach at the Mayoral Charity Ball on Thursday, 16th May. Category winners will each receive a specially commissioned hand-crafted award, certificate and a €500 cash prize towards their work.

Cllr. Liam Carroll (FG), Cathaoirleach of the County of Galway said, “With the deadline fast approaching, I am urging the public to submit their nominations as soon as possible. These awards have been an annual initiative for over 10 years now and provide a fantastic opportunity to acknowledge and reward the amazing community and voluntary work happening around the County and give something back to our dedicated volunteers”.

Nomination Forms are available on https://www.galway.ie or by e-mailing awards@galwaycoco.ie.
