Help us to find the oldest working people in every county in Ireland

Friends of the Elderly in association with TV3 are starting a nationwide competition to find the oldest working man and woman in every county in Ireland.“We want to highlight the benefits of having an older person in the work force” says Dermot Kirwan of Friends of the Elderly Ireland. “They have a lot to offer, their experience, their work ethic and the respect they get from their fellow workers enhances the working environment. We hope these awards will give older people in the work force the recognition they deserve”Six finalists will feature on Ireland AM on the weeks of April 11th, 18th and 25th.The winners will then be announced on Midweek on Wednesday 4th May at the start of Bealtaine Festival Month, which is Ireland’s annual month of celebration of creativity in old age.Every older person that is nominated will receive a Certificate of Merit and the overall winning male and female worker will receive an all expenses paid weekend break at Kelly’s Resort Hotel & Spa, Rosslare, Co. Wexford.Older people who are nominated must work at least 20 hours a week.So if you think you know any elderly people who are still working in your county, post or e mail your nomination with a short description of their average working week and your contact details to  :-D ermot KirwanIreland’s Oldest Working People AwardsFriends of the Elderly25 Bolton Street, Dublin 1dkirwan@friendsoftheelderly.ie01 8731855
