The Mizen Community Partnership (MCP) is delighted to announce the launch of their new website ‘www.ourmizen.com’ on the 3rd January at 3.00pm in the Harbour Hotel, Schull. Aimed at communicating events throughout the peninsula as well as promoting the area to a national and international audience. The website, ‘ourmizen.com’ provides a platform for links and information about all things ‘Mizen’.
MCP Development Officer, David Precious says the objective of the site is to create a ‘one stop shop’ for information about the Mizen peninsula. “Eventually we want to have a complete rundown of all that the Mizen has to offer with detailed information on the many events, facilities and services and of course the stories and history of the place”
The website uses interactive maps to help users discover places to eat and drink, heritage sites, nature trails, and even favourite places to swim and launch small craft. Using links to community web sites and facebook pages ‘ourmizen.com’ offers a great starting point to find out about the areas surrounding Ballydehob, Schull, Goleen, Crookhaven and Mizen Head itself.
All businesses, and other organisations throughout the Mizen are encouraged to send in their internet links, and a brief description to ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’. Videos, photos, and in-depth content are also welcome.
MCP will also welcome blog post content from the community. Photos and comments from festivals, video clips and short essays about a favourite hill walk – all content that illustrates to the viewer how uniquely beautiful and vibrant the Mizen peninsula is will be shared.“If you send it to us we will post” says David.
As the website will be constantly updated to remain fresh and current there is no deadline for new content. “We want to aim this at all travellers and the Irish diaspora world-wide to make this a busy hub of information on business, agriculture, commerce, tourism – all that Mizen has to offer.”
The website is dynamic, and easy to follow. It is believed that with full participation from the Mizen community that the site will attract traffic from all over the world and eventually gain potential for generating income through advertisement and donations.
The website will go live during the launch event at Harbour View Hotel at 3pm on Sunday 3rd January. All welcome.
