There were great celebrations in Killarney on Monday night as Louth’s two entrants in the Pride of Place awards did the Wee County proud.

The House, Cox’s Demesne, which hosts the Cox’s Demesne Youth and Community Group, were the winners in the Community Wellbeing category, while Blackrock were joint runners-up in the Island and Coastal Communities category.

This was a tremendous achievement for both groups who had to demonstrate pride of their place, partnership with their local authority and inclusivity of the community at large by way of presentation on their activities to a judging panel.
