The Bantry Lions Club will present its annual Community Awards in conjunction with its Charter Night Dinner and Dance at the Westlodge Hotel, Bantry on November 14 at on 7.30pm.
The Lions Club aims to recognise the work being done on a voluntary basis by members of our community and to honour the people who make our community a better place within which to live.
This is the third year of the Bantry Bay Lions Club Community Awards and the support of the public is being sought in order to make it another success.
