RTE is Looking for Local Heroes

RTÉ is looking for inspiring individuals or groups across the country who have come up with new and innovative ways to stimulate job creation in their own villages, towns or cities. They are particularly interested in hearing about any tourism, retail, community or enterprise initiatives, including start-up companies, that are up and running or are under consideration around Ireland.

Six ideas or projects will be chosen from the applications for the new series to be presented by Joe Duffy. 

Download the application form which can be emailed to localheroes@rte.ie  Note: Ideas don't need to be fully developed at this stage.

The deadline for entries is this Friday, 21 December 2012. More information can be found at http://www.rte.ie/localheroes/.

On Friday, 28 December at 8pm, RTÉ 1 will broadcast a Local Heroes Christmas Special presented by Joe Duffy.
