Lord Mayor’s Awards to become monthly to honour frontline workers

by Rachel Darcy

The Lord Mayor has announced that the Lord Mayor’s Awards, which usually take place annually, will take place monthly this year, to honour and thank those who have worked on the frontline during Covid-19.

Each month, members of the public will be invited to nominate either a frontline person or organisation that they think has gone above and beyond during Covid-19.

At the end of each month, Lord Mayor Hazel Chu will decide the winner and present them with the Award, a piece of specially-commissioned sculpture and a gift voucher worth €1,000.

There will be a different category each month, beginning in October with frontline workers in Nursing Homes.

“Since March we have witnessed the Trojan effort frontline workers have given to keep our communities going.  This is a chance for the people of Dublin to thank someone who has made a real difference in their life during Covid,” said the Lord Mayor.

“Depending on where things are at, hopefully before summer 2021 we will be able to bring all the monthly winners together for a reception in the Mansion House to thank them on behalf of the city.”

Nominations for October will begin on October 1 and close on October 16.

You can make your nomination online at www.dublincity.ie/lordmayorsawards.
