Northside People will be holding its inaugural Community and Sports Awards 2017 at the Carlton Hotel Dublin Airport on Novemeber 30th.
There are 10 categories across sport and community in total, with an award for the winner of each one – as nominated by the papers readers and voted on by a panel of judges. In addition, there will be an overall Sports Award and Community Award selected from the category winners. Popular ‘Liveline’ host, Joe Duffy, will be MC on the night.
Speaking at the launch in the hotel last month, Conor Mahon, a director of Northside People, said it was fitting that the awards should coincide with the 30th anniversary year of the newspaper.
“We are the voice of local communities, giving groups and organisations a forum for three decades,” he said. “We have always been considered the number one newspaper for recognising and celebrating the achievements of local people and hope that these awards will become an annual highlight of our calendar.”
The award categories for sport are: Team of the Year, Outstanding Achievement, Club of the Year, Young Sportsperson and Coach of the Year.
Community categories are: Volunteer of the Year, Young Community Person of the Year, Business in the Community, Community & Neighbourhood Group and Best School in the Community.
