Kinsale and District Community Awards will hold its inaugural event at on April 11, 2014, in Acton’s Hotel, Kinsale at 7.30pm. This event is to acknowledge the efforts of persons and/or groups in the local community that make it a better place. It is aimed at the local unsung heroes, who through their voluntary actions enhance the area.

Nominations will be accepted from the following areas:  Kinsale, Ballinspittle, Ballinadee, Ballinhassig, Belgooly, Dunderrow and Riverstick no later than March 15, 2014. Entries are to be handed or posted into Red Cross Centre, Church Square, Kinsale, Co. Cork, marked for the attention of James O’Mahony.

The Kinsale and District Community Awards is the brainchild of James O’Mahony and Tomas O’Brien who have felt for some time that there was a need for acknowledgement of the tireless efforts of local persons and/or groups who give so freely of their time and energy for the betterment of all and so a year and a half ago they began pitching their idea and sourcing sponsorship. The idea was seized enthusiastically by all involved, namely, Tomas O’Brien, James O’Mahony, Claire Nash, Catherine Murphy, Charles Henderson, Alice De La Cour, Joan FitzGerald and the late Denis Healy.  Sponsorship was then successfully secured from both Kinsale and District Credit Union and Lilly, for which the committee is very grateful.

The closing application date is March 15, 2014 and a panel of external independent judges will then assess the applications. The categories for nominations are Individual, Group, Special Achievement and Hall of Fame. Applications are available at local businesses and other outlets.

This promises to be a very exciting night and tickets will be on sale at the Boathouse Gallery, Main Street, Kinsale, Co. Cork at €10 each.  This event will be bi-annual, so get nominating for 2014 now.
