People of the Year candidates nominated
Nominations are in for the Wicklow People of the Year awards, with a record 59 applications made on behalf of some amazing people across the county.
Judges are in the process of selecting the winners and face extremely tough decisions as each and every person nominated is deserving of recognition. The committee said that they wish they could give each nominee an award. A spokeswoman for the panel said that each person tasked with choosing the winners was moved by so many stories of those who have enhanced the lives of others.
Groups, organisations and individuals nominated people of all ages from all over the county for the good that they have done within their communities. The winners will be presented with their awards at a gala ceremony in the Glenview Hotel, Glen of the Downs, on Friday, September 21.
The evening will include a meal, presentation of the awards and some music and dancing. The awards are run by the Wicklow Hospice Foundation and Wicklow County Council in conjunction with the Wicklow People and Bray People.
