We’re running this series to spotlight local, sustainable businesses based on the Dingle Peninsula. We’re really interested to get insights into how these businesses started and evolved, how working with local suppliers has positively impacted their business and how they incorporate sustainability into their business and day-to-day work. We would love to encourage future partnerships and successful collaborations between businesses on the Dingle Peninsula and beyond. Follow us on socials to get info on upcoming guests. We’ll have chats every Wednesday at 7pm, it’d be great to see you there. You can watch the chats back on our IGTV and Facebook pages.
Fuaireamar aiseolas iontach faoin sraith IG beoshruthaithe, ‘Corca Dhuibhne ag dul in Oiriúint’. Míle buíochas leis na haíonna is déanaí Maja Binder ó Rip Off (clothing) agus The Cheese Shop (Trá Lí), agus James Greany ó Skyscraper.
Tá an tsraith seo á chur ar siúl againn chun caint le gnónna dhuibhneach, buanaithe. Tá suim faoi leith againn léargas a fháil faoi conas a thosnaigh na gnónna seo agus conas a d’fhorbair siad. Ba bhreá linn comhoibriú agus comhpháirtíocht a spreagadh idir gnónna i gCorca Dhuibhne. Is féidir Dingle Hub a leanúint ar na meáin shóisialta chun a bheith ar an eolas faoin gcéad aoichaointeoir eile sa sraith seo agus faoi imeachtaí eile. Beidh IG beoshruthaithe againn gach Céadaoin ag a 7i.n. Is féidir féachaint siar ar IGTV agus ar Facebook.
