Will Ireland’s best neighbour be found in Mayo?
Everybody needs good neighbours and broadcaster Ryan Tubridy and Eileen Colgan, who plays Esther Roche in Fair City’s Carrigstown, Ireland’s most famous fictional neighbourhood, have just launched the Neighbour of the Year award, as part of the 2012 People of the Year Awards, organised by Rehab.
The award, in partnership with RTÉ 2fm’s Tubridy Show, is this year’s special category and the people of Mayo are being encouraged to nominate an inspirational neighbour who has made a real difference in their community. The awards will be presented by Gráinne Seoige and televised live on RTÉ One on Saturday September 15.
Nominations can be submitted online at www.peopleoftheyear.com or nomination forms can be requested by telephoning 01 205 7260 and submitting them to People of the Year Awards, Rehab, Roslyn Park, Beach Road, Sandymount, Dublin 4.
