Eilish’s award recognises her lifelong commitment to community empowerment, including her work with women’s groups and her pioneering of the Transitional Justice Grassroots Toolkit. The Toolkit was co-designed with Bridge of Hope at Ashton Trust, and the work was based on cross-community dialogues in North Belfast.
