People of the Year Awards roll into town
The countdown is on for nominations for this year's People Of The Year awards.
2fm presenter Eoghan McDermott and TV personality Diana Bunici, both enthusiastic backers of the scheme, urged members of the public to get their favourite names in on time.
Final date for nominations is midnight on Monday, September 14.
The event will be broadcast live on RTÉ on December 5.
Eoghan and Diana stressed anybody who feels a "hero" is living in their local community should get the name in on time.
Family, friends or work colleagues can all make the shortlist.
Independent.ie Comments Facility
INM has taken the decision to remove the commenting facility on its online platform Independent.ie to minimise the legal risk to our business that arises from Ireland's draconian libel awards system.
We continue to look forward to receiving comments through direct email contact or via social media, some of which may still be featured on the website Independent.ie
