Do you have a project or an idea which supports job creation in your area?

If so, RTÉ Local Heroes, in association with MACE, wants to hear from you.


RTÉ Local Heroes, in association with MACE, is currently inviting applications
from individuals or groups who are doing or plan to do something visionary to
create jobs in their local communities.
Six ideas or projects from towns and cities across the country will be chosen to
feature on the new Local Heroes television series presented by Joe Duffy.

In 2011, Drogheda took on the challenge of supporting job creation by stimulating
their local economy. During a 100-day period, the town undertook numerous
initiatives which produced concrete results. Since Drogheda led the Local Heroes
campaign, new towns and cities across Ireland have come on board, including
Kells, Slane and Limerick.

RTÉ and MACE are now looking for inspiring individuals around Ireland who
have come up with new and innovative ways to stimulate job creation in their own
villages, towns or cities. You may be an individual or a member of a community
group, a volunteer or a representative from a business organisation. It may be a
new project or a venture already in progress.

If your idea or project aims to create local jobs for local people in your area and
you would like to be part of the new Local Heroes television series, please
download an application at or pick up a form in your local
MACE store.

The closing date for receipt of entries is 21st December 2012. Only projects with
a completion date of April 2013 will be considered.
Application forms to be returned to Local Heroes, c/o Animo Television, 5-7
Westland Square, Pearse Street, Dublin 2 or by email to

For press queries, please contact Cleona Ní Chrualaoi at or
