As some of you know, on December 5th we won Young Person of Year award. We were amazed and so very happy to win the award, it was lovely to see people have been paying attention to the work that we do but it was also great that it got farm safety into the spot light and talked about for a night on a prime time tv slot that would reach many many people. On the day we went to the Radisson blu hotel we went outside for a photoshoot until lunchtime. Then we had lunch where we met all the other winners and my goodness each and every one of them had an amazing story to tell and was so deserving of the award they were getting. Then we had a practise and after we had to put on make up. Then we had an hour to get ready before the 3 course dinner. After the dinner was the real awards ceremony . We had to sit at a table and wait for our award to be announced . Our award was presented by Connaucht and Ireland rugby star Robbie Henshaw . We were both very happy, we didnt know who was giving us the award at all! At the end of the awards it was late at night and we were both very tired but very glad.And well done to all the rest of the winners and thank you to RTE and the Raddison blu for a very good night.
You can see us getting out award on RTE player untill the 5th of january
