Well the search is now on, as The People of the Year Awards, in partnership with The Ray D’Arcy Show on RTÉ Radio 1, are looking for that very person.
Do you know someone who does extraordinary things that really make a difference to their family, friends, neighbours, work colleagues or local community? This is your chance to thank them on live TV.
The team behind Ray D’Arcy Show is calling out to people all over the country to nominate their heroic partners, friends, parents, neighbours and co-workers that deserve some national recognition at the 2015 People of the Year Awards.
Ireland’s Everyday Hero can be of any age, from any walk of life and from any part of Ireland but there is just one criterion. They can be the essence of community spirit, or they can be the person who puts everyone else before themselves and never asks for thanks.
To nominate your hero, log on to peopleoftheyear.com or email firstname.lastname@example.org before Friday, November 6. The winner will be announced live on the People of the Year Awards TV programme on RTÉ One on Saturday, December 5.
