This year, the Irish Made Awards will feature a special category honouring a champion of Irish Made

Irish Made Awards

The Irish Made Awards 2022 are here. Open to businesses producing and making products in Ireland, entries are now live and we’re looking for the next big thing across fashion, food, beauty and more. This year, we are thrilled to launch the inaugural Lifetime Achievement Award, which aims to celebrate a longstanding Irish-made advocate.

The winner of this award will be a producer, crafter or industry mover and shaker who has contributed to the strength of Irish made. Someone who champions the ethos of supporting what it means to create a product in Ireland. From ingredients and raw materials right through to working with other producers and suppliers, they will be someone who understands that Irish made is so much more than just products for sale, it’s selling a piece of this island’s culture and story. The Lifetime Achievement Award was created to acknowledge them and  the recipient will be honoured at the awards ceremony, taking place in October.

To sponsor this special new award, we are delighted to welcome Weir & Sons to the Irish Made Awards 2022. As a family-run business that has been a stalwart feature of Grafton Street and Ireland for over 150 years, there couldn’t be a more perfect supporter for this award. Founded in 1869 by Thomas Weir, Weir & Sons has grown to become one of Dublin’s best recognised retailers. For decades, they have been the go-to destination for luxury and designer jewellery, watches and silverware.

For details on how to enter the Irish Made Awards, see the Awards page, and FAQs here. The deadline is 31 May 2022. Please note the new Lifetime Achievement Award is not for individual entry; the recipient will be decided on by our panel of expert judges and revealed at the awards ceremony in October 2022.
