IPB Pride of Place is a unique opportunity for community groups to be officially recognised on an all-island basis for the valuable work undertaken in their local areas.

Entry is by way of county, city, borough or district council nomination only. The process for nomination may vary from council to council.

  • Some areas have their own ‘mini’ Pride of Place competitions, that act as preparatory step to the all-island competition.
  • Other councils will place advertisements for Expressions of Interest in their local media.
  • Others nominate entries directly based on their knowledge of the communities and groups with whom they are involved.
  • If your area is not listed please contact your local Co-operation Ireland rep
