Gaelscoil on Around Tramore

Posted by James Mernin.

The new Gaelscoil Philib Barún website has been integrated into the Schools section of Around Tramore, a new community website operated by The Munster Express and powered by Waterford Institute of Technology start-up FeedHenry.

The Gaelscoil website uses a popular Content Management System (CMS) called WordPress, which enables any content published on the school blog to be made available via an Internet Feed. This feed in turn allows other systems that use feed-based technologies to automatically detect new articles on the Gaelscoil website and re-publish them in a different format, which is precisely what the Around Tramore site does.

Therefore, any new articles written for (and published on) the Gaelscoil website will not only appear on that website, but also on the Gaelscoil blog, the Around Tramore site and on any other sites that have subscribed to the Gaelscoil blog. Other systems which are built on feed-based technologies include Google Reader, My Yahoo, Newsgator and Bloglines.
