Best of Clare Winners 2024

Clare FM’s Best of Clare 2024 recognised and celebrated the outstanding individuals and organisations within County Clare during 2024. Over six weeks, listeners voted in their thousands, with the total number of votes exceeding 170,000.

The awards spanned several categories, with winners determined through public voting. This democratic approach ensured that the people of Clare had a say in identifying and honoring the best businesses and individuals in the county. Each winner received a prestigious plaque to display outside their establishment, symbolizing their excellence and contribution to the community.

This year, the local Hero award went to Fr. Harry Bohan, honoured for his outstanding achievements in helping to build County Clare.

The overall winner for the best Clare Business was The Armada Hotel, the award was presented to their Managing Director, John Burke

These awards not only serve as a platform for recognition but also foster a sense of unity and camaraderie among the people of Clare. The initiative aims to bring the community together and showcase the exceptional talent and dedication within the county. Through public voting and the presentation of plaques, the awards serve as a symbol of appreciation and gratitude for the contributions of individuals and organisations to the local economy and community.
