  • “Battle for the Lake Kite and Music Festival, Achill Island” in the ‘Festival of the Year’ category.

Commenting on the announcement of the shortlist, Ian Talbot, Chief Executive Chambers Ireland said, “It is important to recognise the continued hard work of local authorities across Ireland despite the many challenges they have faced in recent years. The shortlist for the 2016 Excellence in Local Government Awards highlights the dedication shown by Irish local authorities across a range of categories, from promoting economic development to sustaining the arts. This year we introduced a new category, Commemorations & Centenaries to showcase the enormous effort that was put into projects and events to celebrate and commemorate 1916 across the country. I would like to congratulate the twenty three shortlisted local authorities and acknowledge the excellent work being undertaken by all local authorities in Ireland.”

The Excellence in Local Government Awards are held in association with the Department of Housing, Planning, Community and Local Government. The winners will be announced at the 13th annual awards ceremony on 24th November at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Northwood, Santry.
