TIME TO NOMINATE YOUR HERO FOR DUBLIN LORD MAYOR’S AWARD

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!
