National Lottery Good Causes Awards 2024

County Winners Announced!

Good Causes Awards County Finalists

Since 1987, National Lottery players have raised over €6 Billion for Good Causes like these across every corner of Ireland.

The National Lottery’s Good Causes Awards celebrate and honour the inspirational work carried out by hundreds of volunteers, coaches, care givers and other individuals across Ireland, and the organisations they represent. The work these people do is phenomenal and has a real and meaningful impact on the communities and causes they so selflessly support.

Thank you to the hundreds of beneficiaries who applied for this year’s awards. Our judges were bowled over by the calibre of entries. This year we are delighted to announce 147 county finalists across the categories of Health & Wellbeing, Sport, Heritage, Arts & Culture, Community, Youth, and the Irish Language. These amazing organisations will now go through to the next round of judging where 35 National finalists will be selected to come forward to represent their organisation at a gala event in October 2024.



There is a total prize fund of €135,000 available.

Each of the 35 National Finalists will also receive a cheque of €1,000 to celebrate them reaching this stage of the competition. Full details can be found in our Terms & Conditions below.

Every year, the Good Causes Awards celebrate the inspirational work carried out by many volunteers, coaches, care givers and extraordinary people across Ireland, along with the organisations they represent.
