#AbleHour News – February 2018
We are delighted to announce also that #AbleHour is a finalist in the Giving Back section of the 2018 Micro Business Awards. More details when we get them!
Dublin 15 Disability Peer Support Group invites you along to the forum, every month, for tea, chat and networking, not just for friendship and fun but also to address accessibility and other issues for people with disabilities. Sometimes, however, maybe you can’t get to the venue (Blanchardstown Library) at the set time and we really don’t want you to miss out. So we came up with #AbleHour – the Dublin 15 Disability Peer Support Group weekly chat on twitter.
..because it’s about time we took this conversation online!
#AbleHour is a terrific opportunity to network and to discuss any issue pertaining to disability not just in Ireland, but globally – All Welcome!

Twitter Tips: How to join the hashtag chat
1: Always use #AbleHour in all of your tweets for inclusion in the hashtag chat
» If you forget the hashtag, your tweet will just go to your regular followers, who may not be participating in the chat.
2: Be kind, follow back
» Apart from the banter and learning opportunity – hashtag chats have the additional benefit of great networking. So it is good etiquette (twitterquette) to return a follow from fellow chat participants.
3: Keep two tabs open: #AbleHour and Notifications
» You may find that people respond directly to your tweets and you don’t want to miss them particularly if the hashtag chat starts moving quickly – so keep your Notifications tab open.
» You may also like to see who is following you to follow back – and this will also appear in Notifications.
