Three Wicklow Groups Shortlisted For National Lottery Good Causes Awards.

Birdwatch Ireland, Glen of Imaal Irish Red Cross Mountain Rescue, and Kiltegan GAA Club have all made the shortlist for this year’s National Lottery Good Causes Awards.

Birdwatch Ireland, Glen of Imaal Irish Red Cross Mountain Rescue, and Kiltegan GAA Club have all made the shortlist for this year’s National Lottery Good Causes Awards.

The National Lottery Good Causes Awards shed a spotlight on groups that make our communities safer and stronger, with each group receiving a cheque for €1,000, as well as an invite to the awards ceremony where a set of overall category winners will receive an additional €10,000 in prize money, with the top prize of €25,000 going to the Good Cause of the Year.

35 organisations have been selected for the National Lottery Good Causes Awards, with the Wicklow picks being Birdwatch Ireland under the ‘Heritage’ category, Glen of Imaal Irish Red Cross Mountain Rescue under the ‘Community’ category, and Kiltegan GAA Club under the ‘Sport’ category.     

Taoiseach Simon Harris had this to say “It is great to hear that out of 35 National Finalists for the National Lottery Good Causes Awards 2024 in 16 counties, 3 are from Wicklow. These groups have been selected for the exceptional contributions they make to their communities and near endless dedication to making a real difference.

“I want to thank all participating organisations and the National Lottery who play a key role in supporting Good Causes in the areas of sport, youth, health, welfare, education, arts, heritage and the Irish Language. I look forward to seeing the results in October at the Good Causes Awards Gala.”
