Shankill Online

December 6, 2018

In your own words, tell us about your project.
This project is a blog meant to promote the small village of Shankill, situated in Dublin 18. It contains short posts both about events that take place locally and photos and information on the history and geography of the village.

It is my way of putting together as much information as possible about the great community and village of Shankill.
Why did you do this work?
I live in Shankill and my husband was born there. I love this village and I think the community here deserves to be known and have an online channel to communicate with the wider online community.
What was the impact or outcome of your project?
Local people know about the blog and invite me to events. They also ask me to promote the activities they do.
Do you have any tips or advice for similar projects?
If you're passionate about something, you will be successful. Just put in the work that's necessary for that. I'm passionate about local initiatives and blogging.
Which Sustainable Development Goals does your work link to?
Goal 11. Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable
Goal 16. Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels
