ISANDS website launched

On September 15th the new website of the Irish Stillbirth & Neonatal Death Society (ISANDS.IE) was launched by the Minister for Health and Children Mary Harney T.D. at the Croke Park Conference Centre. Over a year in development the site is a complete rebuild of the previous site first launched in 1997.

At the core of the new site is a digital version of the ISANDS Remembrance Quilt, the digital version has borrowed from the grid pixel nature of the million dollar homepage, making the size and capacity of the new online digital quilt infinite.

The new site also incorporates a new donation & shop facility which uses Realex Payments as a payment gateway.

We would like to thank Ron Smith-Murphy of ISANDS. for her dedication and work on this site and Colm Lyon of Realex payments for his vision of web services for groups like ISANDS.
