We would like to take a moment to say thank you for your continued support and readership of SligoEvents.ie throughout 2011. What started as a small blog in 2009, sharing proudly online what Sligo has to offer, has now reached 100,000 readers this year. We’ve posted nearly 700 events posts since we began and we’re now connected to over 2,000 people on Twitter @SligoEvents and just broaching 2k on Facebook. (G’wan, give us a like..!). That’s nearly 4,000 people who love hearing about what’s happening in Sligo!
We would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to the artists, music makers, crafts people, galleries, curators and all those who make everything happen in County Sligo and especially to you for reading and sharing our posts.
This year we loved the new Craftfest Northwest that brightened up Sligo during winter, we were wowed by the new surf videos from our neighbour Peter Clyne showcasing the massive waves off Sligo beaches, and we adored the new ‘Sligo Sets Your Spirit Free’ brand developed by Sligo Tourism (pictured above).
Exciting Developments this year:
- Throughout 2011, we worked with Sligo Arts Service as editor of SligoMusic.ie, the new online home for music in Sligo.
- In August we gave a Social Media workshop to 30 musicians and music professionals at The Model as part of the Sligo Music Working Forum.
- We started a new site, Digital Sligo, promoting digital and technology news. We’re very much looking forward to getting stuck in to this in 2012.
- We are helping to promote The Swap Sessions, a night of fashion and fundraising in Shells next Wednesday December 28th.
In 2012, we look forward to new developments at SligoEvents.ie, new partnerships and of course our favourite festivals Só Sligo Food & Cultural Festival (new dates May 18th – 20th), Sligo Live (Oct 24th – 29th).
