SSE Airtricity Dublin Marathon organisers and the Lord Mayor of Dublin, Críona Ní Dhálaigh are seeking nominations for the 2015 “Lord Mayor’s Medal”.
The “Lord Mayor’s Medal” was introduced in 2011 as a way for the Lord Mayor’s office to acknowledge the outstanding achievement of everyone who takes part in the SSE Airtricity Dublin Marathon.
The specially commissioned medal is presented to an individual or individuals who are deemed to have either overcome incredible odds to take part in the Airtricity Dublin Marathon or have an unusual marathon story to tell.
The inaugural medal recipient in 2011 was Margaret Mullarney. Margaret has suffered from Parkinson’s for a number of years and was presented with the award due to her efforts in training and raising awareness for the disease. The 2014 recipient was John Collins of Limerick who competed in his 30th consecutive and final SSE Airtricity Dublin Marathon at the age of 83
Organisers are looking for nominations to be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org before 14th October 2015.
The presentation of the Lord Mayors Medal will take place before the start of this year’s SSE Airtricity Dublin Marathon on Monday 26th October.
