Impact & Trends Report 2022

web trends banner

Living with Covid-19 as the third year of the pandemic drove public policy on health issues and social contact on the ground everywhere well into 2022. One of the largest dominoes that kick started chain reactions on ways of life across Europe (and the world), was the Russian invasion of Ukraine in February.

Still underway, the occupation and invasion effected supply chains, accommodation centres and emergency support measures across the EU, including in Ireland.

This short impact and web trends report reflects some of the headline data from across 2022 on with resources, launches, public events and the second Irish-language vocab series list on indigenous languages, culture, history and colonialism were delivered across the year.

Our thanks to everyone who used the website, joined our events, worked in partnership with us on so many ways and generally reached out on social media or otherwise.

Be seeing you in 2023.
