North Cork Fine Gael Councillor John Paul O’ Shea has sent his best wishes to the community of Bweeng as they prepare for the 2018 IPB Pride of Place Awards, to be held at Cork City Hall on Saturday 17th November.
In association with Co-Operation Ireland, the Pride of Place competition is now in its 16th year and attracted huge interest since its inception. Cork County Council has four representatives in this year’s competition; Bweeng Community Hall and Sportsfield Committee is joined by Youghal Tidy Towns, Lusitania Museum/Old Head Signal Tower, and West Cork Islands Community Council.
Speaking this week, Cllr O’Shea commented: “It has been great to witness the enthusiasm in Bweeng over the last several months and the atmosphere and buzz that has been created through the Pride of Place competition.
“Judges were treated to an excellent tour earlier this year and I have no doubt that they were impressed by the vibrant and active community in Bweeng. They have been worthy representatives in this year’s competition, they have done Cork proud and I hope that they are recognised for this at the awards ceremony on the 17th,” said Cllr O’Shea.
The Pride of Place competition acknowledges the great work carried out by communities all over the island of Ireland. It also recognises the work undertaken to create viable, vibrant and visible communities while giving local authorities the opportunity to participate in the heart of their communities and contribute to their growth.
