Fermoy Area Sports & Community Awards 2016
Fermoy Enterprise Board and Fermoy Credit Union and AIB ( Fermoy) , in conjunction with main sponsor McCarthy Insurance Group, are proud to announce that this coming November 12th in the Corrin Event centre they will host the Fermoy Area Sports and Community Awards once again.
This was a fantastic night when last held in November 2014 with some very worthy recipients on the night. More importantly it was a fun filled night with many laughs, dancing , great food and wine and a chance to catch up with people from the area and of course the chance to acknowledge some wonderful achievements in the sporting world and in the community.
This year the awards will have the aim of acknowledging outstanding people and organisations whom, through their commitment to participation in sports, community and voluntary activities have had a significant impact on the quality of life in the Fermoy Area in 2015.
Fermoy Enterprise Board is delighted to host the Sports and Community Awards night and we are sincerely grateful to McCarthy Insurance Group, Fermoy Credit Union and AIB for their generous support in the venture. Many individuals, groups and organisations make invaluable contributions to the community be that in the voluntary sector or in their sports endeavours.
Our wish is that such people are formally recognised so that we can publicly acknowledge their efforts and achievements. It is also our wish to honour very special and talented individuals who have achieved excellence and represented our community at the highest level. Many of these individuals are unsung heroes who go quietly about their business in the community.
The awards will acknowledge outstanding people and organisations who, through their commitment to participating in community, voluntary and sporting activities, have had a positive and significant impact on the quality of life of their communities in the Fermoy Area. We invite and encourage you to please put their names forward for these Awards as these individuals, groups, clubs and organisations make such an invaluable contribution to our town and community.
