Council Chairperson Hosts Civic Recognition Award Ceremonies Across District Electoral Areas

Newry, Mourne and Down District Council Chairperson, Councillor Laura Devlin hosted a series of Civic Recognition Award ceremonies across each of the seven District Electoral Areas (DEAs) on Thursday 27 and Friday 28 May 2021, when 33 inspirational individuals from across the district received a Civic Recognition Award.

The Awards are designed to honour individuals and organisations who in their own unique way are wonderful ambassadors for Newry, Mourne and Down district.

Speaking after the award ceremonies Councillor Devlin said, “I speak on behalf of the Council and the community when I say we are immensely proud of the remarkable people who were recognised over the last two days. I was delighted to recognise outstanding achievements, with such a diverse range of accomplishments.

The Civic Awards provide me as the Chairperson of Council with the opportunity to officially thank the unsung heroes in our district for all their hard work and commitment. I wish everyone continuing success in their respective fields. You are excellent ambassadors for Newry, Mourne and Down and contribute greatly to our district, which I am proud to represent as Chairperson.”
