A total awards prize fund of almost €200,000 will be shared by 41 towns, including the overall national winner and the winner of the ‘Rising Star’ category.

Judges will visit all nominated places during August and September and winners will be announced at a gala awards ceremony in December.

Since the inaugural National Enterprise Town Awards in 2016, 104 towns, urban areas and villages across the country will have shared €500,000 in funding to invest in their community.

The number of nominees has grown from 17 in 2016 to 79 this year and the competition is open to small, medium and large towns as well as city villages/urban areas.

Brian Whelan, Head of Bank of Ireland for Dublin South, said: “It’s fantastic to see South Dublin represented in this year’s Bank of Ireland National Enterprise Town Awards.

"Enabling communities and business to thrive is at the heart of what we do at Bank of Ireland and the National Enterprise Town Awards are a chance for us to recognise and reward the spirit of enterprise in towns across the country.”
