Aonach Mhacha is situated in the historic heart of Armagh city and opened as a landmark Irish language, arts and cultural hub in March 2020. A number of Irish language organisations will base their offices in the new centre including CAIRDE Teo; Gael Linn; Macha Media, SEACHT, Ionad Churam Lae Ard Mhacha and Armagh Rhymers. The centre will also include a café and shop, classrooms, incubation units for new cultural enterprises, exhibition space and a small theatre which will meet the needs of the Irish language community. Aonach Mhacha aims to develop and deliver a series of cultural and community projects which will be additional to the activities carried out by the anchor tenants. These will include language classes, social enterprise training, cultural tourism events, art and cultural heritage exhibitions, concerts, festivals, musical and dance performances, workshops, seminars and community development initiatives.
Aonach Mhacha required a brand new website to help raise awareness of the centre and provide a centralised point of reference and source of information on the range of services, information and events available to the community.
The team at WebsiteNI created a modern website using engaging visuals and design to compliment Aonach Mhacha’s brand identity. The new website has clean navigation to clearly highlight what Aonach Mhacha is all about and promote the range of facilities and events on offer. The website features an interactive events calendar and News & Media page to help keep visitors up to date with the organisations activities and events, with the ability to click into each event for more information. A language facility enables website visitors to choose to view the content in English or Gaeilge.
The new website works seamlessly across a range of browsers, from desktop through to tablet and mobile. The website was developed within the WordPress platform with an easy to use Content Management System that provides administrators at Aonach Mhacha the flexibility to effectively manage the website and easily update new events and information.
