Lord Mayor of Dublin Caroline Conroy presented three individuals and three organisations with a Lord Mayor’s Award at a reception in the Round Room at the Mansion House.
The recipients of the Lord Mayor’s Awards are the Irish Wildlife Trust, Sandra Dillon, Sail Training Ireland, Gerard Prendergast, An Taisce, and Barry Keoghan.
“The Lord Mayor’s Awards ceremony is one of the highlights of my term of office,” the Lord Mayor said.
“I have chosen to honour individuals and groups from many different walks of life.
“They have helped make Dublin a better place through their tireless efforts in the fields of inclusion, health and well-being, the arts, heritage and biodiversity, conservation, and community and family support.
“I congratulate all the recipients and thank them on behalf of the people of Dublin for their contribution to this great city.”
Since 1989, this annual award ceremony is an opportunity for the Lord Mayor to highlight and acknowledge, in a special way, achievements of both individuals and groups.
Previous winners of the Award include Ana Liffey Drugs Project, Imelda May, Maeve Binchy, Dave Fanning, Merchants Quay Ireland, Damien Dempsey and Commander Chris Hadfield.
Actor Barry Keoghan did not attend the ceremony due to filming commitments.
