Members of the Wicklow Town Team, In Good Company, and guests from the wider Wicklow community gathered in Marine House on Wednesday night for the launch of WicklowTown.ie.
Wicklow Town finally has its own website and digital hub, and Wednesday night was a chance to officially launch this huge, sprawling website with some wine and canapes.
Some of the guests included Minister Andrew Doyle, Councillors Mary Kavanagh & Paul O’Brien, and officials from Wicklow County Council and County Wicklow Partnership.
Wicklow Town Team successfully applied for funding for the website under the Rural Development Programme (LEADER) through County Wicklow Partnership and the LCDC for this website along with securing Sponsorship from Burke Oil and Wicklow Town & District Chamber.
Hosted by Marine House, the launch was a chance for people to learn about the website, chat with the developers, and a chance to talk about similar projects in the pipeline for Wicklow Town.
“Wicklow Town Team are always open to new ideas and new people getting involved.” Said Dave Shannon, chair of the Wicklow Town Team, who also talked through some of the current projects including the East Coast Greenway and backlighting for the town’s historical sites.
Rosemary Kavanagh from the Digital Group then gave an overview of why the Town Team felt WicklowTown.ie was needed and introduced everyone to the website features.
Some of those features include a compendium of Wicklow Town’s places to eat, drink, and stay, as well as an exhaustive list of things to do in the town. There’s informaton on local services, education, events, local clubs, and much more.
That’s a lot of content on one website.
And you can find out for yourself by visiting WicklowTown.ie.
