Mayo County Council has today launched the first ‘Cathaoirleach’s Awards’ in County Mayo.
The Mayo County Council Cathaoirleach’s Awards will honour and celebrate individuals and groups that work quietly behind the scenes to make our communities stronger, more vibrant and caring, often inspiring and motivating others to become actively involved in their communities.
Unsung heroes are to be found in every town, village, street and road in County Mayo.
The Mayo County Council Cathaoirleach’s Awards public nomination process will open soon at www.mayo.ie .
It is envisaged that awards will be made in the following categories
Mayo Publication Award
