Nominations are now officially open for the Fermoy Area Sports and Community Awards 2015/2016 which will be held on Saturday 12th November in the Corrin Event Centre, Fermoy.
The awards, which were resurrected following a few years hiatus in 2014, offer the community the opportunity to recognise the outstanding achievements of various clubs, individuals and community groups in the locality.
There will be seven sports and three community categories awarded on the night including Sports Team/Club of the Year, Sports Club Person of the Year, Special Needs Category, Young Sports Person of the Year, Female & Male Sports Person of the Year, Hall of Fame Award, Community Group/Organisation of the Year, Volunteer of the Year and a Special Merit Award.
A number of nominations have already been received across the categories and all clubs, committees and individuals are welcome to enter any of the categories. The awards offer a great occasion to acknowledge the impact that such groups and people have had on the quality of life in the Fermoy area.
The closing date for nominations is Friday 30th September and the winners will be announced on Thursday 13th October. Nomination forms are available from Barnes Jewellers and Slattery Travel or online from the Fermoy Credit Union website and McCarthy Insurances website.
