The 2019 Limerick Pride of Place Awards.

Do you live in a place in Limerick that you are so proud of that you want to let everyone know about it?

Well if you do then the Pride of Place Awards 2022 might be of interest to you.

Pride of Place is an annual all-island competition that is run in conjunction with local authorities and aims to recognise improvements made by local communities to create civic pride in their area.

The competition celebrates the efforts and endeavours of communities throughout Ireland, to make their place the best place to live. The focus is about people coming together to shape, change and improve the daily lives of people in their communities.

The Irish Public Bodies (IPB) 2021 Pride of Place awards are presented in association with Co-operation Ireland. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the competition. This all-island competition is run in conjunction with local authorities north and south. It aims to recognise and celebrate the vital contributions that communities make to society along with generating awareness, respect and inclusion for every facet of society.

Pride of Place has enjoyed tremendous success and continues to grow in terms of prestige and popularity.

Limerick has an impressive track record of success in this competition. Previous winners have included Rathkeale Pre-Social Cohesion Project, Abbeyfeale Community Council, The Children’s Grief Centre, Limerick Civic Trust and Kilmeedy.

Groups interested in being considered for nomination are asked to complete an Expression of Interest form on Limerick.ie together with an entry photograph, and return by the closing date of Friday, April 29 2022.
