MACE Ambassador and Ireland rugby captain, Johnny Sexton,  is delighted to support MACE’s search for Ireland’s Unsung Heroes

MACE has once again teamed up with Ireland out-half Johnny Sexton to offer people in Kerry the opportunity to share in a prize-fund of €10,000 in a community initiative, whereby the public nominate their Unsung Hero.

MACE is asking the people of Kerry to nominate that special someone who goes the extra mile to make a difference, so they get the recognition they deserve.

They want people to nominate their unsung hero, and to tell them which award they think their nominee should win and why.

The individual Award Categories are:

• Charity Award
• Child & Youth Award
• Environment Award
• Sports, Health & Well-being Award
• MACE Store Team Award

The special overall MACE Community Award will single out someone from around Ireland who really goes over and above to give something back to their community.

Nominate that special person by logging onto and tell them why they deserve to be recognised as an Unsung Hero. Closing date for entries is May 31. There is no limit on the number of award categories you can enter.

Each category winner will receive €1,000 while the overall special MACE Community Unsung Hero will receive an overall prize of €5,000.

This is the second time MACE have run this initiative. Last year, Limerick native Leona O’Callaghan was selected as the overall outstanding hero for her tireless work in raising awareness of violence against women. Leona was an outstanding recipient of the special overall MACE Community Award.

MACE Ambassador Johnny Sexton said; “I’m delighted to be a part of this exciting MACE initiative once again. This is a great way for communities to recognise that special person who always puts others ahead of themselves and I’m really looking forward to seeing the wide range of thoughtful and generous acts by people in communities all around the country. I am genuinely proud to be working with MACE in promoting this positive community initiative throughout towns and villages in Ireland.”
