I manage the online activities of Cork city wine merchants Bubble Brothers: supervising social media accounts; writing and amending product descriptions in the best interests of both customers and SEO; writing, researching, enabling and sending newsletters; improving, updating and repairing the Magento site; and, occasionally, actually selling wine to people. I'm also in charge of customer and supplier service: managing stock, orders, deliveries and shipping and the enquiries and record-keeping that go with the job.
I did what I could for the gardens of Annes Grove, Co. Cork, and worked there as often as circumstances permitted from 1999 on. The transfer of the property to the state, and of its care to the Office of Public Works, brought an end to my efforts.
Press articles were rather scarce to begin with, but there will be plenty written as the OPW's interpretation of the estate gradually admits visitors. I may add an occasional link to the list here.
I play drums too.
But that's a whole nother story.
