In his address, the Cathaoirleach paid tribute to the Award winners. ‘Too seldom as a community do we take the time to formally show our appreciation for the enormous work of our dedicated community volunteers, those people who give so generously of their time, energy and expertise for the common good. This Awards ceremony is Sligo County Council’s opportunity to show our gratitude for the many community groups, associations and individuals right across County Sligo.
The entertainment at the ceremony was provided a group of local musicians Kate, Tom and Paddy Gavin.
