The Corkman - - NEWS -

AN­TIC­I­PA­TION is build­ing across Cork County as rep­re­sen­ta­tives from four very dif­fer­ent Com­mu­ni­ties pre­pare for the Pride of Place Awards Cer­e­mony to be held at Cork City Hall on Satur­day 17th Novem­ber.

Cork County en­tries this year are:

• Youghal Tidy Towns

• Bweeng Com­mu­nity Hall and Sports­field Com­mi­tee

• Lusi­ta­nia Mu­seum/Old Head Sig­nal Tower

• West Cork Is­lands Com­mu­nity Coun­cil The pur­pose of the Pride of Place Com­pe­ti­tion is to ac­knowl­edge the great work car­ried out by com­mu­ni­ties. Judg­ing for this pres­ti­gious, all is­land com­pe­ti­tion took place in Au­gust over the course of two days, dur­ing which rep­re­sen­ta­tives from all four lo­ca­tions demon­strated their com­mit­ment and con­tri­bu­tion to the growth of vi­brant and vi­able com­mu­ni­ties in their ar­eas.

In wish­ing the fi­nal­ists well, Mayor of County Cork Cllr Pa­trick Ger­ard Mur­phy said, “I would like to con­grat­u­late all the com­mu­ni­ties in­volved on their achieve­ments, both on the ground and in mak­ing it to the fi­nals. Cork County Coun­cil is im­mensely proud to work with and sup­port such in­spi­ra­tional com­mu­ni­ties. I wish all our en­trants the best of luck.”

Bweeng Com­mu­nity Hall and Sports­field Com­mi­tee is the only North Cork group in con­tention at this year’s Pride awards.
