Best of Leitrim’s community volunteers to be honoured tonight

A host of people in Leitrim who work to make the county a better place are to be honoured at an awards ceremony tonight.

The inaugural Environmental and Community Awards 2017 will commend local people from community groups, resident associations, businesses, schools as well as individuals who tirelessly try to keep the county lovely.

Nominees from Ballinamore to Bornacoola will be in attendance at the awards which replace the Floral Pride competition.


The awards which are sponsored by Leitrim County Council and Leitrim Public Participation Network (PPN) will be presented in the Bush Hotel in Carrick-on-Shannon.

And according to Tracy Ferguson, development officer at Leitrim PPN everyone nominated as well as the winners deserve all the recognition.
