Bord na Móna’s Catherine Swaine was the overall winner at the inaugural Irish Wind Industry Awards, which were held in Dublin at the end of January.
More than 300 people from Ireland’s leading renewable energy companies were joined by Minister Richard Bruton TD and MC, broadcaster Ivan Yates, at the Clontarf Castle hotel to celebrate the award winners who are leading the way to a carbon free energy future for Ireland.
"I would like to congratulate each winner on their award,” said Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment Richard Bruton TD.
“Ireland must become a leader not a follower in wind energy and each winner of these awards is a leader. Wind energy both onshore and offshore are and will be crucial to how we respond to our responsibilities in this area."
Offaly’s Catherine Swaine walked away with the overall award of the night for her work co-ordinating public visits to the Bord na Móna Mountlucas wind farm.
