Judging is taking place today in the Pride of Place competition, with judges visiting two separate communities in north Mayo.
Pride of Place acknowledges the work of local communities across the island of Ireland, and the winners will be announced at a ceremony in Cork on 17th November.
The judges are visiting Killala, Ballycastle and Belderrig this morning, as the Céide Coast is representing Mayo in the new Community Tourism category of the IPB Pride of Place awards this year.
The three communities are working together to develop tourism across the area.
The Pride of Place judges will travel to Belmullet this afternoon, as the Erris branch of the Irish Wheelchair Association is representing Mayo in the Community Well-Being section.
A community celebration with BBQ and music is planned for the wheelchair association's centre in Belmullet this afternoon.
The third Mayo community nominated for the Pride of Place awards is the village of Balla, which is representing Mayo in the population category.
The judges will arrive in Balla tomorrow morning for a 3-hour visit.
