The LAMA Community & Council Awards 2016 presented by IPB Insurance and LAMA, took place at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Northwood Dublin on Saturday 30th January. The awards recognise and celebrate community and councils together. They provide a great opportunity to highlight and celebrate the work done within communities and to reward unsung heroes.
The Irish Maritime Festival, Drogheda, Co Louth was honoured with the Fáilte Ireland Best Tourism Initiative. The Irish Maritime Festival is Ireland’s largest annual maritime, food and family festival. Taking place each summer on the quayside at Drogheda Port, the festival attracted over 40,000 visitors in 2015.
Speaking after the awards Jenny de Saulles Head of Ireland’s Ancient East with Fáilte Ireland said –
“We are delighted to present this award to the Irish Maritime Festival in Drogheda which was a very worthy winner in a strong and competitive field. Our Ireland’s Ancient East initiative is very much routed in Ireland’s history and stories – festivals, events and attractions are key to its success. The Maritime Festival is a perfect fit for the kind of asset we want for Ireland’s Ancient East – bringing local history and heritage alive through food, activities and an emphasis on Drogheda’s coastal heritage. Well done to all involved in such an innovative and successful event.”
