Judging Panel 2019
“It is an honour to participate in the Irish Red Cross humanitarian awards judging panel, to help celebrate those who, often at significant personal sacrifice, endeavour to make our society and our world a better place.”
“RCSI is delighted to partner with the Irish Red Cross in celebrating the work of exceptional people in serving our common humanity in Ireland and across the world. Celebrating leadership, courage and vision through these awards provides inspiration to us all to go that extra distance to make the world a better place for everyone.”
“As a witness to the often life-saving and always life changing impact humanitarians have on the community and world around them, it’s a great privilege to join the Irish Red Cross to honor and celebrate those who have shown extraordinary leadership in this field. Indeed never has it seemed more appropriate to elevate and raise awareness of these champions and their deeds as when, like now, there are those who would rather punish acts of solidarity and humanitarianism.”
“I am honoured to be a judge once again for the Irish Red Cross Humanitarian of the Year awards because it is so important that we highlight, and call out, critical and most valuable selfless work being done by brilliant people for the benefit of others. In this era of individualism we need to talk more about those in our society who work in teams and with passion to help others have a better life. We share this planet with over seven billion other souls and we should never forget we are only here momentarily and must support those who are making this time better, for humanity.”
“I am truly honoured to be a part of the Irish Red Cross humanitarian awards judging panel. For so many years the Irish Red Cross has been fighting for the dignity and human rights of the most vulnerable and at risk in our society, so often at times of natural disaster and armed conflict. It is so very important that we recognise the importance of humanitarian achievements and those who give of their time, many in a voluntary capacity, to help others in communities across Ireland and the world.”
“In my time in service with Óglaigh na hÉireann, I have seen and experienced the results of ICRC efforts in the promotion of respect for international humanitarian law and its labours on behalf of the victims of armed conflict. I am privileged to participate on the IRC humanitarian awards judging panel, particularly as the ICRC humanitarian mission is seamlessly compatible with Óglaigh na hÉireann’s values and its commitment to conflict resolution, evidenced by over 60 years unbroken service on United Nations mandated deployments in the cause of peace.”
