On a fresh May morning on the shores of Camlough Lake and at the foot of Camlough Mountain Chairperson of Newry Mourne and Down District Council Councillor Naomi Ballie officially launched the new Ring of Gullion website, www.ringofgullion.org. gullion websiteThe website revamp is part of The Ring of Gullion Landscape Partnership, a Heritage Lottery Fund programme to conserve and enhance some of the region’s most treasured landscapes. Newry, Mourne and Down District Council are managing the £1.4 million programme. The scheme aims to engage people with the Ring of Gullion Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and surrounding landscape. Wibble Web Design & Development worked closely, over a number of months, with the Ring of Gullion team to create a modern, aesthetically pleasing and mobile friendly website that conveys the beauty of the region and the array of activities and projects that are currently available to people. Chairperson Councillor Naomi Ballie said, “We are lucky to have three Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty in our council area and this new website is a great resource for the Ring of Gullion AONB. “It’s really encouraging to see further development of the area that has come on in leaps and bounds in the last few years. With investment from our funders and commitments by the council to the Ring of Gullion, the area is only going to go from strength-to-strength. She added, “I am particularly delighted that this project has been delivered by a locally based company, Wibble Web Design And Development.” Over the coming months more features will be added to www.ringofgullion.org including an online shop run by the Ring of Gullion Handicrafts and Arts collaboration (ROGHA), an events programme for the Lúnasa festival and a special page for Micheal J Murphy, a well known local writer, storyteller and archivist, will be launched to coincide with his festival in November.
