Six nominated for pride awards

Wednesday, 14th October, 2020 2:33pm

Six communities and groups are in with a chance of being awarded for how they shape, change and enjoy all that it good about their area.

Cork City Council has linked with Co-operation Ireland in nominating the communities, groups and organisations for the 2020 IPB Pride of Place awards, which are an all-island competition that recognises improvements made by local communities to create civic pride in their area.

Director of Service for Community Culture & Placemaking in Cork City Council, Adrienne Rodgers, said: “Every year this competition is one that all community groups look forward to as they get to show the rest of the country the innovative and interesting ways they help their community and its people; from the small village to the stand alone community project group focussed on wellbeing the Pride of Place is just that, an opportunity for the groups to showcase why they are so proud of their projects and places.”

Cork City Council said it had the “difficult task” of nominating just one nominee in each of the above categories. The nominees are:


• Blarney Village for Urban Neighbourhood/Village under 3,000 population

• Ballincollig for Urban Neighbourhood/Village over 3,000 population

• The Hut (Youth & Community Resource Centre) in Gurranabraher for Creative Place Initiative

• Lantern Project for Community Wellbeing Initiative

• SHEP Earth Awareand Elders for Earth for Community Climate Action Initiative

• The South Side Youth Forum in the category of Community Youth Led Initiative.
