Sheila gets online with Cork events

A MILLSTREET woman will next Monday realise a long held ambition when she presides over the launch of Cork's newest social and entertainments listings website.

The brainchild of Sheila Carver, will contain a detailed breakdown of events taking place across Cork city and county.

Having noticed a gap in the local online listings sector, Sheila has devoted the last 18-months of her life to developing the new site.

"It's been a whirlwind of activity, particularly over the last six-months. I'm delighted that the time has finally come to raise the curtain on the website," she said.

As well as containing listings for music, arts, dance and theatre in Cork, the website will contain sections on eating out, the best pubs and clubs in Cork and a social section.

"The idea is to bring all of the venues across the city and county together in one resource that will be readily accessible and easy to navigate," said Sheila.

Sheila said groups such as IRD Duhallow and the North Cork Enterprise Board have fully backed the concept.

"There are so many business support and networking bodies out there who are willing to help develop an idea. All you have to do is ask," she said.

The website charges venues to add their details but will subsequently list any ongoing events for free.

"The idea is that venues will be able to access the site themselves and update their own information and listings," said Sheila.
