Mayor Mark Ward presents Community Endeavour Awards 2018

The Community Endeavour Awards took place in the Red Cow Moran’s Hotel on Saturday the 1st of December. Mayor of South Dublin County Council, Cllr Mark Ward, was on hand to present the awards to the winning groups. 

The Community Endeavour Awards aim to acknowledge, promote and recognise the work of community and voluntary organisations within the administrative area of South Dublin County Council. 

There is an immense richness and variety of voluntary organisations working in South Dublin and this initiative aims to recognise the efforts of those who carry out this valuable work. All community organisations whose activities have made a difference in their community and had a beneficial effect on residents were eligible to enter.

A total of 173 entries were received from a wide variety of groups operating in South Dublin County and these were then assessed by an independent judging panel.

Speaking at the event, Mayor Cllr Mark Ward said, “Tonight as a Council, we give thanks to South Dublin County’s voluntary organisations for their work over the past twelve months. We appreciate their commitment and dedication to making this County a better place to live and work.”
