A ten-year-old Limerick boy has been nominated for a prestigious leadership award.
Padraig O’Callaghan from Ballingarry is a finalist in the LIFT leadership awards in the Positive Attitude category.
Those shortlisted are people from across Ireland who have demonstrated great personal leadership, making a difference to the people around them and influencing Ireland for the better.
The winner of each category will be announced at an online awards event on Wednesday, 17th November 2021.
Pádraig, who has Down Syndrome, became famous when he started his own weekly podcast or ‘paudcast’ during the pandemic in an effort to lift spirits.
Commenting today Joanne Hession, Founder of LIFT Ireland, said: “We are delighted to be able to celebrate everyday leaders from Limerick and across the country again this year. Last year’s awards were a great success showcasing the leadership and resilience shown throughout the pandemic. Going online over the past 18 months has allowed us to reach even more participants with over 20,000 people taking part in our Leadership Roundtables, developing their leadership skills at a time when they were most needed.”
