Glin Development Association has been crowned the overall winner of Limerick Going for Gold 2016.
There were jubilant celebrations at The Strand Hotel on Tuesday evening when it was announced by JP McManus that the coastal village in West Limerick had won the top prize of €10,000.
Over 140 applications were received for this year’s competition, which was funded by the JP McManus Charitable Foundation and run by Limerick City and County Council.
This year marked the fourth year of the Limerick Going for Gold campaign and for the second year running the overall competition was open to community groups from across County Limerick.
Five groups secured a place in the grand final during a series of weekly public text votes over the summer with a panel of local judges selecting a further seven wildcards.
