Use our hashtags
Tell us about your Irish walks - past and present - by sharing them on social media. We promote a selection of dedicated social media hashtags for walking in Ireland. By including these hashtags in your walk-related posts they will appear among social media search results and reach a wider audience. This in turn will attract new followers to your own social feed.
And don't forget to tag us in your posts (see below). We will aim to interact with as many of your Irish walk-related posts each day as we can.
Tag us @irelandwalking
Millions of Ireland-related posts are published across social media platforms throughout the year. Unfortunately we don't have the resources to go looking for all the walk-related ones among them. Even if you use our dedicated initiative hashtags, we might still miss yours. For this reason, we recommend that you bring your posts to our attention by simply mentioning @irelandwalking in the text. We receive a notification every time we get a mention, and if your post is related to recreational walking in Ireland (and it's of a positive nature) we'll give it a like.
We interpret the inclusion of the @irelandwalking handle in a social media post as both a share request and a permission to share*. In most cases we will share these posts on our own feeds. However, original posters' account settings sometimes prevent us from doing so. If you are wondering why we haven't shared your posts, it might be worth checking your account settings. We are more than happy to help boost your walk-related stories, photos, videos, messages, announcements and promotions to an audience who is also interested in recreational walking in Ireland.
You can find us on Twitter and Instagram so please give @irelandwalking a mention in your Irish walk-related posts to be sure we don't miss them. We also have a public Facebook group where members can post relevant stories, photos, videos, etc. We will share a selection of the group's most interesting posts to our main Facebook page.
* We will only share your posts in ways which clearly credit you as the original poster. This will be done as 'retweets' on Twitter and 'shares' from our Facebook group to our Facebook page. We will also showcase a selection of users' posts as 'fleets' on Twitter and as 'stories' on Facebook / Instagram. Fleets and stories only appear on our profiles for 24 hours. We do not include other users' posts in our Instagram highlights.
