The Get Involved Awards Presentation took place on the 26th of February in the Radisson Blu Hotel in Athlone. Energy Communities Tipperary had been nominated to attend the award ceremony, representatives from the ECT group on the day were: Noel Byrne(DUET), Con Harrington(DUET), Alan Madden(LRET), Jackie Hogan(LRET) and Gearoid Fitzgibbon(NTLP).
Energy Communities Tipperary was unfortunately beaten on the day by Limerick Community Grocery (LCG) who is also a fantastic community run organisation. They received the first prize award of €5000, but Energy Communities Tipperary came a very respectable second place and picked up the second prize award of €1000. This is a huge achievement for the group and it’s a great token for the hard work and dedication that has gone into the Energy project last year.
