The National Security Awards

30th November 2021

The Shelbourne Hotel, Dublin

We are delighted to launch the inaugural National Security Awards 2021 to recognise the talent, commitment and heroic efforts of the Irish national security community over the past 12 months. 

This is Ireland’s only event bringing together policy makers, national security leaders, academics, industry representatives and distinguished international guests to address Ireland’s future security challenges. 

The awards will cater for all sectors of the national security community and will open for public nominations. Nominees will be put to a panel of distinguished judges in late October with the awards being conferred at a black tie gala awards dinner at the prestigious Shelbourne Hotel on 30th November 2021.

  • Champagne Reception on arrival
