We are delighted to sponsor the 2016 ISIA premier award. As with previous years, we will have the honour of presenting the Paul Lynch Memorial Trophy to the ISIAs chosen recipient.
In previous years we were honoured to present the trophy to many worthy winners:
2015 – Geraldine Larkin, former Chief Executive of the Private Security Authority, in recognition of her important work in introducing regulation and licensing to the industry. Geraldine oversaw the transition of the industry to a professional, trusted one in which over 800 businesses and 28,000 individuals are now licensed.
2014 – The award was accepted by His Excellency, Dominick Chilcott, British Ambassador to Ireland, on behalf of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II for the contribution that her visit in 2011 and the reciprocal state visit by President Michael D. Higgins to the UK have made to solidify the new era of peace within which we now live.
2013 – The award was accepted on behalf of Co-operation Ireland by their Chief Executive, Peter Sheridan. Co-operation Ireland is Ireland’s largest cross border charity. Co-operation Ireland creates opportunities for groups from the two main religious communities in Northern Ireland and from both sides of the border. Their work breaks down sectarianism and encourages integration of communities across the island of Ireland.
2012 – The award was accepted on behalf of all the men and women of Dublin Fire Brigade by Chief Fire Officer, Stephen Brady. Dublin Fire Brigade, which celebrated 150 years in 2012, is the largest full time brigade in the country providing fire and emergency response service to over 1.2 million people. With responsibility for high risk sites throughout Dublin city and county their services are critical to our capital city.
