Recently Blackrock A.C. entered the .IE Digital Town Awards. Over the past 7 months, things have been very busy with our digital profile. An array of digital tools from visual edits to SEO and all things in between have been implemented in bringing about our new communications strategy. As anyone from Blackrock A.C. will attest, we love a good challenge so thought it was a great opportunity to showcase our work in this competition.
