Approximately 8 phone call enquiries and e-mails were received to the BREOCHLOCH office, however during the workshops on average over 50 people per day followed the events of the BREOCHLOCH Facebook site. To date over 290 people have looked at the pictures of what has been done.
A press release went out to several different newspaper, TV and radio media groups. Difficult to know who all covered the story, but are aware that the Irish News, and Gaelcéal. A film crew from Northern Visions followed the develop of one day in the workshops.
Increase in knowledge and understanding of the heritage of the West Belfast.
Allow interest levels to be gauged and various forms of communication tried to see which would be the most successful. Facebook proved to be a very successful way of keeping people up to date about this events, however as Facebook is for 18yrs + it meant that any of the young people who took part could not access the pages unless via a parents account. We consequently put a range of the pictures on the BREOCHLOCH website and sent a link to all schools.
