 The People of the Year Awards, Ireland’s pre-eminent national awards ceremony celebrating the country’s most inspiring people, provide an opportunity to shine a light on real-life heroes around the country, telling stories of courage, perseverance, generosity and achievement. The event is also a highlight of the Irish social calendar, attended by a bevy of stars and celebrated public figures.

 Calling on people to nominate the heroes around them, TV rugby pundit and children’s author, Brent Pope said: “The People of the Year Awards honour the heroes in all of our communities – for outstanding acts of bravery, achievement and public service – ensuring that they get the recognition they truly deserve. With the closing date fast approaching, I urge people to get nominating today at www.peopleoftheyear.com as this is your last chance to nominate.”
