Estate Awards recognises residents' local pride

Cavan County Council hosted its Cavan County Estate Awards on Monday 13th May. The awards are an initiative of the Housing Department designed to support and acknowledge the work of resident groups in housing estates in Cavan.

The event was opened by Chief Executive of Cavan County Council Eoin Doyle who commended all the groups on their work and their engagement with Cavan County Council by continuing to take part in the awards and volunteer their time and efforts in taking care of public areas. Mr Doyle committed that the council through the Tenant Liaison Officers and Community Wardens will continue to support residents’ groups.

Cathaoirleach of Cavan County Council, Cllr Philip Brady presented awards to 23 groups. Councillor Brady extended his thanks to all resident groups for their dedication and congratulated the winners of the Estate Awards on their well-deserved recognition. He noted that all residents’ groups registered with Cavan County Council received financial support through the annual grant for the ongoing work that they do, and the awards shine an additional spotlight on those who have been particularly impressive in their efforts.

In 2024 all participating groups registered with the Public Participation Network who act as a support agency for all community groups in Cavan. Any groups who wish to participate in future events can register with the Public Participation Network and contact the Tenant Liaison Team in Cavan County Council for further information.
