SIR – I am writing in connection with the 2016 national People of the Year Awards and wonder if your readers might be able to help us.

Each year the People of the Year Awards, which are organised by Rehab and shown live on RTÉ One television, shine a light on some of the many unsung heroes who are living in communities throughout Ireland. We need nominations from your readers to help to identify this year’s Award recipients.

If you think you know someone who has done something extraordinary, who has made a real difference, who has gone above and beyond the call of duty and whom you feel deserves a People of the Year Award, then nominate them now. You could also nominate in one of our specific categories, Young Person of the Year, International Person of the Year, Sports Person of the Year or Community Group of the Year.

The closing date for entries is Monday, September 12th, and it’s quick and easy to nominate someone – simply fill in the short nomination form on or through the Facebook app on You can also contact the People of the Year Awards office for a nomination form on 01 2057397.

This is your chance to honour inspiring people in your county. Awards will be presented live on RTÉ One television on Saturday, December 3rd.

Yours sincerely,

Kathleen O’Meara,

People of the 

Year Awards, 

Rehab Group, 

Roslyn Park,


Dublin 4.
