BALLINA SALMON FESTIVAL, MIDWEST RADIO AND CALLAN TANSEY SOLICITORS ANNOUNCE THE INAUGURAL ‘BEST OF BALLINA’ AWARDS 2024

Ballina is such a good news story!  From fishing to festivals and from history to culture the town is bursting with enthusiasm and culture – driven by people and organisations who are passionate about their town.

Ballina is home to a multitude of local characters, historians, sporting hero’s, volunteers, and activists. With so many organisations and voluntary groups doing their work quietly and effectively Ballina is a great place to live, socialise and experience. The River Moy may be one of the jewels in the crown but the greatest jewel of all are the ordinary people and organisations who have done extraordinary things to make Ballina simply the BEST!
