Congratulations to Local Link Donegal who have been shortlisted for the Age Friendly Transport Award at Ireland’s National Age Friendly Recognition and Achievement Awards 2018. The Age Friendly Ireland Programme, hosted by Monaghan County Council, takes place in the Hillgrove Hotel April 10th.

The primary aim of these awards is to recognise and reward achievement in age friendly initiatives around Ireland. The Age Friendly Transport Award is all about getting to where you want to go which is so important to so many older people. This category recognises the vital difference that access to good quality and reliable transport options can make to an older person.

This is the third annual Awards event for the Age Friendly Ireland Programme and the awards ceremony will be held amid a two-day schedule of events in Monaghan.

This year the eight categories of awards were chosen as they have a meaningful impact on the lives of older people, planning and creating a sustainable Ireland for all.

Previous winners include Local Link Louth, Meath and Fingal.  We wish Local Link Donegal, and all nominees, the very best of luck April 10th
