Co-operation Ireland, its local authority partners and its headline sponsor IPB Insurance are proud to present the prestigious Pride of Place Competition, the original community recognition awards, for the 17th consecutive year. The competition has enjoyed tremendous success and continues to grow in terms of prestige and popularity. We are delighted to acknowledge the continued and much valued involvement of our title sponsor IPB Insurance in the competition in 2019.
The purpose of the competition is to acknowledge the work being done every day by communities all over the island of Ireland. Since the competition commenced our judges have met hundreds of thousands of people, all of whom are proud of their place. The competition is based on communities demonstrating directly to the judges their pride in their place by oral presentation, exhibitions of community activities and culture and a tour of the area highlighting the aspects of which they are particularly proud. It is also important that the community demonstrates real partnership with their local council and shows that all sectors of the community are included.
