Kidare cousins, Aoibhe Lawlor and Amy Lewis from St. Mary’s College in Naas, have been unveiled as MACE Community Child and Youth Unsung Heroes in recognition of their tireless work for Marys’s Meals.


Nominated by family and classmates, Aoibhe and Amy raised more than €3,500 through a variety of initiatives over the last 6 months. They were nominated for the award as part of the MACE Unsung Hero initiative, which aimed to identify and celebrate someone who really went over and above to give something back to his or her community.


The MACE Unsung Heroes initiative was launched by Ireland rugby star Johnny Sexton to stimulate community spirit and recognise true local heroes like Aoibhe and Amy in communities all around Ireland.


Commenting, MACE Sales Director Daniel O’Connell said, “What Aoibhe and Amy have achieved for the Mary’s Meals charity is truly inspiring. I am awestruck and full of admiration for their commitment and achievements. They both embody all that we look for in our heroes and I cannot think of anyone more deserving of this acknowledgement.”


Thank you so much to Aoibhe and Amy for all their hard work!
