Crumlin community scoops top digital award at virtual ceremony

CRUMLIN was announced as winner of the Community Digital category at the .IE Digital Town Awards.

The awards honour local town projects and people who are using digital innovation, technologies, and digital-first thinking.

Crumlin’s ‘Connecting Crumlin’s Community’ entry won a total prize of €9,000

The results were announced at a virtual awards ceremony this week attended by Minister of State Damien English.

The .IE Digital Town Awards were established in 2021 by .IE, the managers of Ireland’s trusted online .ie address.

Crumlin was recognised for the development and implementation of effective digital strategies that have enabled the locality to successfully communicate, educate and enable residents to take part and learn about environmental activities and issues.

This year’s awards had a focus on communities and digital leaders who have adopted new ways of thinking to enhance localities through innovative use of digital tools to provide digital equity in the community.

There was a total prize fund of €100,000 across seven award categories. 13 counties had one or more project nominated, including Cavan, Clare, Cork, Donegal, Dublin, Galway, Kildare, Kilkenny, Kerry, Limerick, Mayo, Roscommon, and Sligo.

.IE Corporate Communications Manager Oonagh McCutcheon said:

“We would like to congratulate all of our winners, runners-up and commended entries. At .IE, we hope that the Crumlin community and all of our other winners, runners-up and nominees can become an inspiration to other towns and communities around the country and, ultimately, help to breathe new life into local communities through demonstration of novel and innovative ways of using digital tools.”
