I firmly believe that it is essential that we recognize communities and the thousands of volunteers across the island of Ireland that give of themselves selflessly every day. It is clear that working together and getting things done increases peoples’ pride in where they live and in turn helps build vibrant communities. I wish our five community groups all the best in the upcoming awards in Belfast and that they are winners already!”Séamus Neely, CE of Donegal County Council states that “All those nominated epitomise the sense of community spirit that can be seen all across Donegal and the whole of Ireland, with people committed to creating positive civic change in their respective communities.
