The 2007 Kerry Community Awards are being launched today in Killarney. The awards aim to give something back to the community and voluntary groups that work to improve the social, economic, cultural and environmental quality of life in our local communities. Awards totalling 50,000 Euro will be divided between six different categories. About 600 community groups in the county could qualify for the competition and application forms will be available from Kerry County Council, libraries, local development companies and online.
