Applications now open for Pride of Place Awards 2023

Roscommon County Council is currently inviting community groups across County Roscommon to participate in the County Roscommon Pride of Place Competition 2023. Pride of Place is a prestigious All-Island competition and recognises the vast wealth of community contribution to the local society and the creation of civic pride.

Roscommon County Council will nominate one or more groups to the All-Island Pride of Place Competition, organised by Co-Operation Ireland. This year’s competition promises to showcase some of the vast wealth of talent and innovation that characterises community groups throughout County Roscommon. The competition is divided into thirteen categories.

Community groups can only enter the All-Island competition by being nominated by Roscommon County Council. The County Pride of Place competition is open to all communities in County Roscommon with the exception of communities that have been nominated within the last three years.

Applications should be made on a town, village or parish basis. Applications received from different groups in the same area may be treated as one application. Groups should, where possible, work together and submit one joint application. The closing date for this year’s County Competition is 4 pm on Wednesday, April 26th. For further details, email

Last year, three of the county’s community groups represented Roscommon at the national finals, which were held in Dublin in January. They were Lough Ree Access for All, Lisnamult Tidy Towns and Residents Association, and The Melting Pot.
