Speaking about the Awards Lord Mayor Nial Ring said “The Lord Mayor’s Awards ceremony is one of the highlights of my term of office.  I have chosen to honour individuals and a group from many different walks of life.  However, all of them have one thing in common; they have enriched all our lives in some way, whether through their music; their sporting achievements or simply their work in supporting and caring for others.  This acknowledgement of their contribution is richly deserved.   The wonderful work the volunteers do in supporting people in keeping fit is to be applauded. I congratulate all the recipients and thank them on behalf of the people of Dublin for their contribution to this great city.”
