Balbriggan Town Awards 2019

December 6, 2019 0

The Balbriggan Community Liaison Committee hosted the Balbriggan Town Awards on Thursday 5th December 2019 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 Council was represented on the night by Cllr. Gráinne Maguire and Cllr. Tony Murphy and the awards were introducted by Chief Executive AnnMarie Farrelly. 

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.  Congratulations to all the winners on the night.
