With the deadline looming only days away, time is running out to vote for The Anglo-Celt/Rehab People of the Year awards. A deluge of voting forms has already reached the Celt's offices as the Cavan public continue to pledge their support for the many deserving nominees.
In addition to the traditional People of the Year Awards, to mark the event's 30th anniversary, there is also a special Person of the Decades Award. This recognises the former Person of the Year winner who made the greatest contribution to the community over the last three decades.
To make your vote count, simply fill out the forms on page 8 of this newspaper and submit it to the Celt's Station Road office before the closing date of Friday, March 1 at 5pm.
Online voting at www.anglocelt.ie/cavanpeopleoftheyear opened this week and remains open until the extended date of Monday, March 4 at 10am.
Voting online is restricted to one per computer or device (IP address) and you must vote for one person in each category.
The Anglo-Celt's editor Linda O'Reilly urged the Cavan public to vote before it's too late.
"If you think one of the nominees deserves recognition for their work in the community, help them to follow in the footsteps of our 2011 winner, Drumlane's Mary Lawlor, by registering your vote today. Your vote could make all the difference."
The awards will be presented at a gala ball and banquet in the Hotel Kilmore on Thursday, March 21, with RTÉ's Damien O'Reilly as MC on the night.
