Wibble are delighted to announce that they have won a highly commended DANI award in the ‘Not for Profit’ category for the Ring of Gullion project that we released in March 2015.
As Wibble was only founded in Nov 2013 to be nominated for an award of this stature was a huge honour. We were up against some heavy-hitters in the same category: The Mac and the Oh Yeah Center, however, we felt that the work and effort put into the Ring of Gullion site, would stand to us and we were duly recognised.
The awards were hosted in St Columb’s Hall in Derry and representatives from the Ring of Gullion, Wibble and the Heritage Lottery Fund NI attended the black tie event.
The Ring of Gullion project has been the jewel in the crown for Wibble. A huge increase in numbers has been the most rewarding part of the whole project – currently the site is experiencing over 25,000 sessions a month, up from around 500.
Wibble were a pleasure to work with. All targets set out in the terms of reference have been met and many new features of the project have proven to be a success, the site hosts interactive maps, downloadable audio trails, beautiful photo galleries.

This award is a huge honour for a small business and rewards the faith that the Newry and Mourne Council placed in Wibble when awarding it the tender for this massive project.
