Message from Sean Holland on behalf of organisers

For us, the health and welfare of the volunteers is paramount. Given the current restrictions around public gatherings, travel, and adherence to social distancing, it would not be appropriate to ask voluntary groups to work on Muintir na Tire Pride in our Community competition projects in their communities at this time.

Hopefully, if restrictions are eased, there may be an opportunity for groups to undertake some work when it is safe to do so and in a way that is manageable later in the year, but unfortunately this will not form part of our competition this year

We would urge all Groups to follow the advice of the HSE – stay at home, don’t travel except for essential purposes, and practice social distancing.

We want to thank our main sponsors, Cork County Council and Cork City Council, for their understanding of the situation we find ourselves in at this time. I know that they, too, will look forward to being able to celebrate the return of the competition in 2021.

Mr Sean Holland
