MACE Ambassador and Ireland rugby captain, Johnny Sexton, is delighted to support MACE’s search for Ireland’s Unsung Heroes.


MACE has once again teamed up with Ireland out-half Johnny Sexton to offer people in Roscommon the opportunity to share in a prize-fund of €10,000 in a community initiative, whereby the public nominate their Unsung Hero.

MACE is asking the people of Roscommon to nominate that special someone who goes the extra mile to make a difference, so they get the recognition they deserve. It wants people to nominate their unsung hero, and to reveal which award they think their nominee should win and why.

The individual Award Categories are:

*Charity Award

*Child & Youth Award

*Environment Award

*Sports, Health & Well-being Award

*MACE Store Team Award

The special overall MACE Community Award will single out someone from around Ireland who really goes over and above to give something back to their community.

Do you know someone who gives themselves selflessly to benefit a charity organisation or their local community? If so, then we want to hear from you.

Each category winner will receive €1,000 while the overall special MACE Community Unsung Hero will receive an overall prize of €5,000.

MACE Ambassador Johnny Sexton is very excited to be part of this initiative again as it is a programme that sees the public nominate someone special to their community who embodies all that is good about their community, someone who truly is a local hero.

Nominate that special person by logging onto and tell us why they deserve to be recognised as an Unsung Hero.  There is no limit on the number of award categories you can enter. The closing date for entries is May 31st.
