The Annual Lord Mayor’s Awards will take place monthly until April 2021, to honour and thank those who have worked tirelessly on the frontline during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Each month members of the public will be invited to nominate either a frontline person or organisation that they think has gone above and beyond during Covid-19. At the end of each month the Lord Mayor Hazel Chu will decide the winner and present them with their prize, a piece of specially-commissioned sculpture and a gift voucher worth €1,000.
“Since March we’ve witnessed the Trojan effort frontline workers have given to keep our communities going. This is a chance for the people of Dublin to thank someone who has made a real difference in their life during Covid,” said the Lord Mayor.
“Hopefully before summer 2021 we will be able to bring all the monthly winners together for a reception in the Mansion House to thank them on behalf of the city.” The nominations will be held over seven months in the following categories:
- October: Nursing Homes
- November: Transport
- December: Hospital Services Staff
- January: Retail
- February: Emergency Services
- March: Hospital Medical Staff
- April: Community
Nominations for October will close on 16 October, so it’s time to start nominating!
