It is time for Ireland's Everyday Hero to step into the limelight and be honoured as part of the People of the Year Awards.

They can be of any age, from any walk of life and any part of the Ireland - the only criterion is that they must be truly special.

Mo Flynn, chief executive of the Rehab Group, which organises the awards, said: "We have vital and important services for people with disabilities around the country and we see heroes in communities every day.

"Everybody knows someone who is always doing something for others. These people often go unrewarded and unrecognised.

"This is a change to say thank you to them in a unique way."

The closing date for nominations is January 19. More details can be found at www.peopleoftheyear.com.
