Ballyvaughan Community Development Committee in partnership with CLDC was awarded runner up in the Digital Tourism category of .IE Digital Tourism Awards.
These Awards promote awareness, knowledge, use and understanding of digital in Ireland by its citizens, businesses and communities.
Ballyvaughan pioneered the development of interactive outdoor recreation tourism infrastructure to link physical walking and cycling trails to the digital world. Interactive signage allows trail users to take and submit selfies and upload them by touching a trail post.
Cyclists can see details of a coming hill by touching the sign and the “strava” segment will automatically open on their smartphone. IoT flood sensors are being installed on sections warn tourists of flooded sections of trails and people counters to monitor trail usage for the management committee.
