The Woman’s Way Mum of the Year Awards 2016 are celebrating their 13th year and are looking nationwide for nominations to crown the 2016 winner.

The Awards give spouses, children, relatives, friends and community groups the opportunity to recognise and reward the fantastic work mums do for their families and friends.

The overall winner of the Woman’s Way Mum of the Year 2016 will win €2,000 cash courtesy of Woman’s Way plus a selection of luxury treats to the value of €3,000. Each of the finalists will walk away with luxury gifts worth in excess of €500.

On the Awards, Áine Toner, editor of Woman’s Way says: “It may be thirteen years into our search for Ireland’s No1 mums, but it’s going to be another lucky year for our finalists and overall winner. Given the volume and nominations we’ve received since the Awards began, it’s clear that our original goal – to give local heroes a chance to shine – remains paramount. If you want to nominate your mum or a mum you know, I urge you to do so.”
