Nominate for your Sports Person of the Year!
The People of the Year Awards, organised by Rehab and sponsored by QUINN-healthcare, provide a unique opportunity for the Irish public to honour those who have made a real difference to people's lives. Nominations are made by members of the public, making these truly the People's Awards and Ireland's answer to a national honours system.
Now in its 36th year, the People of the Year Awards are not just the primary awards event in Ireland, they are also among the longest-running. They are widely recognised as one of the highest accolades a person can receive in this country.
The Awards recognise a unique range of people - from unsung heroes who have quietly made a difference and enhanced the lives of others in communities, to the household names who have made a real difference to people’s lives on a national and international level.
Moreover, every winner has been chosen by the people of Ireland through a nominations process and finalised by an adjudicating committee comprising leading members of the public service, community, business and media sectors.
People of the Year Award winners are a diverse group. They are people who bring joy and light to the lives of others, who have supported others in their darkest hours. They are individuals who have demonstrated their courage and energy in Ireland and throughout the world.
Nominations for the Sports Person of the Year Award can be made here.
