The Best Social Media Initiative award recognises clubs or affiliates who have used social media to promote and generate awareness of initiatives being carried out in a unique or innovative manner. Emphasis was placed on innovation and engagement that has a lasting benefit to the club and league.

The Link Marketing have been working with Cabinteely F.C. since the team was created in the beginning of 2015, and we have managed the League of Ireland’s social media accounts including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat, along with launching and managing their website.

The Link Marketing would like to thank the directors of Cabinteely F.C. for allowing us to be creative and innovative throughout the season. Our online promotions have garnered attention worldwide, with Cabinteely being featured on sites such as FIFA.com, Goal.com, The Guardian and The Irish Times.
