The All Ireland Community and Council Awards presented by IPB Insurance and LAMA, highlight and recognise communities and councils working together, bringing national recognition to projects and developments that may otherwise go unrecognised. Town, Borough, City and County Councillors across the island of Ireland nominate projects across 20+ categories that demonstrate the work implemented through unique projects that enhance their local area for the good of the community.

The 2020 winners were announced at a Gala Awards Ceremony on February 15th, 2020 in Croke Park Stadium. Laois Council were nominated for the Best Local Authority Innovation for Attracting Inward Investment with J17 National Enterprise Park.

J17 is located directly on the M7/M8 Motorway making Portlaoise a key economic location within the Midlands Region and for accessing Dublin Airport & Port and is focused on heavy, light and ICT industry, trade warehousing, distribution, logistics & other uses associated with the transport industry.
