The Search is on for Ireland’s Volunteer of the Year

From now until 4th October, we are calling on the people of Kerry to nominate a volunteer they feel is deserving of a national Volunteer Ireland Award. One outstanding nominee will be named Christine Buckley Volunteer of the Year at a special ceremony in December. Volunteers are the lifeblood of Irish society and we are proud to have a strong culture of volunteering in Kerry. Without them, many of the things we take for granted simply wouldn't exist. It’s hard to think of an area in the county that doesn't benefit from volunteers - from meals on wheels to sport, supporting vulnerable people or enhancing our towns and villages, volunteers are the biggest heroes we have. But they are unsung heroes, and with these awards we want to shine a light on the amazing people who give so much to Kerry without any expectation of thanks or glory.
