What is the IPB Pride of Place Awards?

The IPB Pride of Place Awards is an all-Ireland competition which started in 2003 and celebrates community group contributions to local society and the creation of civic pride.  It focuses on local people coming together to shape, change and enjoy all that is good about their area. The competition is run by Co-operation Ireland in conjunction with local authorities north and south of the border.

Cork City Council will be tweeting live from proceedings on Saturday night, 17th November so follow us @corkcitycouncil and join in the conversation at #ipbpop2018
