Commenting on the launch of the search for Bray’s band of heroes, Bray Chamber’s Pat Ó Súilleabháinsaid: “The annual Endeavour Awards provide all of us with the opportunity to not only recognize individual or group achievement, but also honour that achievement. Most importantly, these individual Awards are nominated by the people of Bray, making the annual Endeavour Awards the premier public accolade that our community can bestow upon that great band of heroes that we have in our town.”
