Cork City Council's website won an Irish eGovernment Award for best local government web innovation. This award was for the website or online service that has succeeded in clearly delivering better services, information and efficiencies to its target audience. Key factors include enhanced customer service, an increase in efficiencies, access to local information or resource savings, simplicity or ease of use and innovation. This brings off a unique double as the council also won the Irish Internet Golden Spider Award for Best Local Authority Website in November 2005.

 

The Irish eGovernment Awards were hosted by Elucidate and the Public Sector Times. Reach was the premier Sponsor and other sponsors included Smart Telecom, Eircom and Foras na Gaeilge. The Irish eGovernment Awards were attended by Tom Kitt T.D. Minister of State at the Department of the Taoiseach with responsibility for eGovernment.
