The Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht oversees the conservation, preservation, protection and presentation of Ireland’s heritage and cultural assets. It seeks to promote and protect Ireland’s heritage and culture, to advance the use of the Irish language, to support the sustainable development of the islands and to develop cultural tourism.
Annertech worked with the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht to develop Ireland.ie, the official website to commemorate the 1916 Rising.
Annertech won the tender to build the Ireland.ie site, working closely with our communications teams within the Ireland 2016 office, our design partners Zero G and our Big O Media, who developed our digital content. The initial site was launched in March 2015, under an extremely tight deadline. Over the course of the next ten months, Annertech were responsible for implementing a number of iterations of the website in order to showcase a vast range and diversity of content in a way that was easily accessible for multiple audiences, at home and abroad. Their work was very thorough, expertly executed and often required working under tight deadlines and under extreme pressure. Their demeanour throughout was very professional and very friendly, which made working with them very pleasant, and positive results much more easy to achieve. No task was too difficult and they also approached every challenge with a positive solution focused approach.
