The National Lottery Good Causes Awards

Welcome to this year’s Good Causes Awards, where the inspirational work done by hundreds of volunteers, coaches, care givers and all manner of big-hearted people across Ireland is honoured, along with the organisations they represent.

What these people do is phenomenal. There is no other word that does justice to the real and meaningful impact their efforts have on the causes and communities they so selflessly support.

Work that you, our players, make possible.

So please join us in celebrating this year’s finalists from 1pm on Saturday May 29th, with many special guests appearing throughout the ceremony.

Get ready to have every heart-string pulled by all the extraordinary things these organisations have achieved over the last year.

Award Categories

There are 36 finalists over 6 categories, as well as a special award category for the Irish Language. At the ceremony, we will be announcing the winner of each category as well as the overall Good Cause of the Year Award. Best of luck to all the amazing finalists.
