The purpose of Rural Ireland Tech Advocates (Rita) is to create a community of advocates and a central resource for folks interested in living and working in rural Ireland. It’s vital that this community is welcoming for all and in order to ensure we have set expectations early, we’ve published our Code of Conduct here. If you agree with the Code of Conduct and would like to get involved as an advocate, volunteer, sponsor or partner then please drop a mail to [email protected]
Two of the key components of the Rita Community are Counties and Tech Advocates.
We are working to create a page for each county in Ireland. These pages will include a bit about the history of each county, details of popular towns, local amenities, Meetup groups, running/hiking trails, greenways, swimming spots, broadband accessibility, co-working spaces, local events, locations of great coffee shops and more.
What is a Tech Advocate? Tech Advocates are volunteers who live and work in rural Ireland. Each Advocate will have their own page where they can share a bit about themselves, their experiences of rural work and recommendations for things to see and do in their county. We’ll introduce new Advocates regularly and include Q&A sessions, Podcasts etc.
