On February 14th I decided to do something different for Valentine’s Day, so I hosted a ‘Heart of Sligo’ day. It was a great way to encourage people to share their photos of Sligo and hopefully encourage others to come and visit. All social media platforms were busy and I’m aware that not everyone is on twitter, so I’m sharing some of the top rated photos from the day on this blog post. I won’t add any of mine because you’ve probably seen them before.
Marie Casserly shared ‘Waiting on the Shore’ at Rosses Point.
Knocknarea and Benbulben on the Wild Atlantic Way from Choosesligo.
Strandhill from David Kenny Photography.

Niamh shared some beautiful photos of Autumn at Dooney Rock, including the one above.
A rainbow over Enniscrone beach from Jessie.
Another one from Rosses Point, this time from Susan.
Liam shared Rescue 118 above Nun’s Beach at Killaspugbrone Cemetery in Strandhill.

A field with a difference. Sally shared her heart of Sligo.
Cawley’s Hotel shared Classiebawn Castle in Mullaghmore.
Joan decorated her bike with heart stickers and went for a spin around Sligo.
Twitter is acting up so I can’t see all the images, but the ones above will give you a glimpse of what the day was like. The day got a 12.1 million reach. Thanks so much to everyone who joined in. If you like The Heart of Sligo idea, you can join the Facebook group.
The Heart of Sligo was a voluntary day, not supported by any agency, business, or individual.
Great pictures Val, keep up the good work and you can repost your pictures all you want, they are always a pleasure to see.
