Two Irish villages have been voted amongst the best places to live in the world in a global poll.
The LivCom awards also recognised the county of Wicklow as a desirable address.
The Laois village of Abbeyleix and the Meath parish of Moynalty have been recognised in the awards.
The LivCom Awards are aimed at improving people’s lives through creating ‘liveable’ communities.
Wicklow, known as the Garden of Ireland, took a gold medal for the second time in the LivCom awards.
Abbeyleix and Moynalty both took silver medals at the awards ceremony in the United Arab Emirates.
