Who We Are
Owner, Scéal Digital
Scéal Digital was founded by Sharon from her interest in social media and digital marketing and the opportunities it holds for small businesses. Sharon has worked from the early age of fifteen. Her strong work ethic and family background of self-employment have given her an interest in methods to build and strengthen a business.
Her interest enticed her back to education and she successfully completed a Level 8 Certificate in Digital Marketing in Cork Institute of Technology in 2017.
The demand for Sharon's freelance services led to the creation of Scéal Digital, which offers digital marketing services and specialises in social media management for small businesses. Based on the Cork and Kerry border, Scéal Digital is in close proximity to both areas and using online resources their services are available to clients throughout Ireland. The name Scéal Digital is reflective of its location in the heart of the Muskerry Gaeltacht while also representing the business' aim of "Telling your story", story being the English translation for Scéal.
