The IPB Pride of Place Awards is an all-island competition that acknowledges the work that communities are doing all over the island of Ireland.

The competition focus is about people coming together to shape, change and improve daily lives in their communities. The three groups were visited in Kerry by Pride of Place Judges in July.
