Volunteers are the glue of our community!
Every year, Skerries Community Association awards a prize to an individual or a group of volunteers in appreciation of volunteering work they have done for Skerries.
Your nominee can be a young person, an adult, or a group – the only thing that matters is that they are deserving prize winners!
Please submit your nomination and supporting text with the reasons why you would like this person/group to get the award so that the judges will be in a position to make a fair decision. Please bear in mind that the judge has to make his evaluation on the information in your nomination so don’t hold back on detailing the reasons and citing evidence of your nominee’s work and achievements.

Who was Jim Quigley?
He was a champion of community development; a larger than life personality who was a dreamer and a doer; an idealist and an activist. Jim was born in 1942 and grew up in Toomevara, County Tipperary. He attended school firstly in Nenagh and then Mungret College, Limerick. After moving to Dublin he worked initially in the bar trade and subsequently in sales with Eir (then Telecom Eireann). In 1970, Jim married Brigid Carolan and shortly afterwards the couple came to live in Skerries, purchasing their home in the newly built Hillside Estate. He started up the residents’ association there and joined the SCA. He drove the huge community effort needed to get the Community Centre funded and built and was for many years chairperson of the Association.
