This year’s Tallaght Person of the Year went to Simon Sweeney of the Kiltipper Ramblers.

Simon’s work in encouraging the community to take pride in where they live is infectious, and in his acceptance speech he noted his predecessor Philip Preston, who sadly passed away earlier this year.

Among the other winners were Social Circle for their incredible work in the community, while Tallaght Martial Arts picked up the Philip Preston Sport Award.
