Tallaght Community Council has announced that they are naming their Tallaght Person of the Year Sports prize after the much loved and greatly missed Philip Preston.
Philly, who was named Tallaght Person Of The Year 2015 for his outstanding and dedicated work with Tallaght Rugby Club, tragically passed away in July and it is a much fitting tribute to his memory that the award be named in his honour.
Everyone who had the privilege of meeting him knew how proud he was of his community and it would be a great tribute to Philip if many nominations are made this year for the sports award.
Philip also wanted people to nominate for all the other categories as well.
Closing date is earlier this year Sat 29th Oct 2016.
Online nominations at http://tallaghtpersonawards.ie/ .
Awards night is Friday 11 Nov 2016 in Red Cow.
