Our Sponsors


The People of the Year Awards are inviting companies to play a part in honouring Ireland’s heroes through sponsorship opportunities at the prestigious annual awards.

Organised by Rehab and broadcast live on RTÉ in December 2016, the Awards are Ireland’s longest running awards show. With a tradition over 42 years of honouring hundreds of people, the awards offer a unique opportunity for companies to play a role in recognising the people who are shaping Irish society.

This is a great opportunity for companies to be associated with a historic Irish brand and an event that highlights all that is good about Ireland.

Previous high-profile award winners include: Paul O’Connell, Panti Bliss, Yes Equality Campaign, Brendan O’Carroll, Katie Taylor, Rory McIlroy, Graeme McDowell, Brian O’Driscoll, Keith Duffy, Padraig Harrington, Christy Moore, Sir Terry Wogan, Bob Geldof and Niall Quinn.

These well-known names are part of a bigger story – the story of hundreds of ordinary people who have been honoured in Ireland for the extraordinary things they have achieved.  That is the magic of the People of the Year Awards.

If you are interested in sponsoring an award, or would like more information, please contact contact Edel O'Connell at
