Balla has taken a Pride of Place Award at the finals held in Cork last night.
Balla won the overall award in the 300-1000 population category at the event in Cork City Hall last night.
While Erris Irish Wheelchair Association were runners-up in their category.
Mayo was represented by three projects at last night’s awards – Balla, Erris IWA and Céide Coast Community Tourism project. All three were nominated earlier in the year by Mayo County Council.
Representatives from all three projects were among the 800 strong crowd in City Hall last night.
