The Mayor’s Community Champions Awards 2023

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to people across Fingal for taking the time to nominate your Community Champion as part of this year’s Mayor's Awards. Your support and recognition of these outstanding individuals across the County is greatly appreciated.

It has been heartening to see members of the public taking the initiative to recognise the contributions of individuals making a significant impact in our community.

There was a huge response to this year’s call for Community Champions, highlighting the large number of positive roles and activities people undertake to help others in their communities, be it for sporting, cultural, health, good citizenship or environmental reasons. There were wonderful examples given about those selfless people who don't normally receive the recognition they deserve for the work they do.

While recognising and valuing all contributions, the nominations were shortlisted and an independent judging panel with extensive experience in community development and volunteering undertook a review of the entries. They have now selected those individuals they believe are most suited to receiving a Mayor’s Award as a 2023 Community Champion.

Finalists attended a gala event on the evening of Thursday 1st June 2023 in Blanchardstown. These were individuals who had embraced the true spirit of community and had shown us that through unity and compassion, we can create a better tomorrow. Their countless hours of hard work, their boundless energy, and their willingness to go above and beyond had not gone unnoticed.

The impact of their efforts reverberates throughout Fingal. Whether it is feeding the hungry, sheltering the homeless, supporting the vulnerable, or empowering the marginalized, they have dedicated themselves to making a tangible difference. They have become the driving force behind positive change, and their commitment to improving the lives of others is nothing short of remarkable.
