Fleadh Cheoil na hEireann 2018 20small 

2018 has been a very good year for Louth Volunteer Centre on many levels. Part of our goal at the centre is embedding volunteerism in the fabric of the community.  A huge opportunity arose this year when Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann came to Co. Louth for the first time in its history. We are very proud of the role our volunteers played in the Fleadh. This work combined with the many and varied other activities undertaken by Louth Volunteer Centre during the year have earned us a nomination in the Drogheda Business Excellence Awards. We would appreciate your support in a public vote for 'The People's Choice Award'. Every vote counts so support volunteerism in Co. Louth and spread the word.

The deadline is Thursday 15th November at 5 p.m.
