Cootehill.ie won the Digital Rising Star award in the 2022 Digital Town Awards run by .IE Ireland Online. Cootehill.ie, Cootehill’s ambitious community website run by the Cootehill Chamber was also nominated in the ‘Digital Community’ category.
St Patrick’s Day celebration
The chamber used social media and the new Cootehill website to get what seemed to be the biggest engagement ever in the for their St Patrick’s Day Parade this year. Vivid online activity attracted national media coverage when Dermot and Dave featured Cootehill in several shows and sent their editor to participate in the parade. In a year where a lot of parades were cancelled Cootehill went bigger than ever.
We used new online forms on their new community website for people to enter the parade and the new online community calendar to promote the weekend’s events.
