Balbriggan Town Awards 2017

December 8, 2017 1

The Balbriggan Community Liaison Committee hosted the Balbriggan Town Awards on Thursday 7th December in the Bracken Court Hotel.  The Town Awards which were traditionally hosted by Balbriggan Town Council have been a great success over the years and have had the support of the wider community.

The Balbriggan Community Liaison Committee comprises of local community and business representative groups, working together with elected members of the Balbriggan area. This group is supported by Fingal County Council to provide a forum where local issues are regularly raised and reviewed.  

The Balbriggan Town Awards provide an ideal opportunity for the community in Balbriggan to nominate people who deserve recognition of their achievements in the areas of Art and Culture, Town Improvements, Sport, and Community.

The Awards are aimed at recognising people who have represented the community on a local, national or international scale, people who provide support to others on a voluntary basis, charitable works, artistic or sporting achievement or business success.
