Does your Granny have what it takes to be the 2009 Granny of the Year?

From Ballyshannon to Ballymaloe we want you to nominate your Granny to take part in the ‘2009 Granny of the Year Contest’ in aid of Special Olympics Ireland. If she gives the best hugs, makes the tastiest cakes or is simply the best granny in Ireland we want to hear from you!

Local heats will take place in every county in Ireland. The winners of each County Final will then progress to one of two Regional Finals.

Twelve grannies will then compete at the All Ireland final in May. Each winning granny will receive a beautiful custom made award from Dublin Crystal and a selection of other super prizes. So honour your granny and get nominating today.

The closing date for receipt of nomination forms is 28th February.

To qualify and to raise money for Special Olympics Ireland each granny must be sponsored a minimum €250 by the 30th March.

All funds raised from the contest will help continue changing the lives of people with an intellectual disability on the island of Ireland.
