Thank you all so much for the feedback on the direction the blog should take.
It’s mostly going to stay the same however I do feel there is a need for a dedicated Sligo website. So Sligo Hub has been born. It’s just on Facebook at the moment but who knows there may be a website in the future.
I’ve started Sligo Hub because I’m so frustrated at the lack of promotion Sligo seems to get. I have looked at an official site which has posted the same thing three times in a row. If tourists looked at that site they’d think there was nothing on in Sligo.
I also feel that it’s not good enough that the Sligo Tourist office are now no longer allowed to post on Social Media as this has been handed over to the ‘Wild Atlantic Way’. In fact if you want to know what’s on in Sligo and you make a phone call you’ll probably end up speaking to someone in Cork!
I’m passionate about promoting Sligo and all it has to offer. I’ve approached various Sligo agencies to see if there was any way I could be involved and have got nowhere – but this isn’t about me, it’s about Sligo.
I’m determined to put our beautiful county on the map. I know we have the best of everything so it’s time to start telling the world about our hidden gem.
