On Friday, February 20, a function was held in the Munster Arms Hotel in Bandon, where 11 young people were honoured, all of whom were nominees in the West Cork Garda Youth Awards (in association with SuperValu) 2014. Whilst they were not chosen as Award winners for the Awards Ceremony itself, An Garda Siochana and SuperValu felt that it was very important to highlight their nomination, and to recognise the excellent work that is being carried out by those nominated.
On the day, Superintendent Liam Horgan of Bandon Garda Station presented the Certificates of Nomination, and Andrew Fallon, (store manager), and Lorraine Kenny of Caulfield’s SuperValu in Bandon represented the Awards sponsor SuperValu. Also present on the evening was Garda James O’ Mahony, Juvenile Liaison Officer, Bandon Garda Station, who initiated these Awards in 1995.
Caulfield’s SuperValu also kindly supplied light refreshments and goodie bags for those present. Garda Damian White, Bandon Garda Station, PRO for the West Cork Garda Youth Awards (in association with SuperValu), thanked all those present for their efforts, and their attendance, and reflected that these Certificates will be a welcome addition to any CV.
