The pyramids. They feature in so much of popular culture. From books to films, to tv shows to popular music. One of the seven wonders of the world, I'd alw

Over the past few weeks our technical team have been working hard on improving and speeding up our domain name search functions. The domain search on our site was slow.

Another new service to help small business http://blog.blacknight.com/one-social-media-dashboard-rule.html

All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing. (attributed to Edmund Burke) We are strong advocates of a free and open internet.

Stop marketing for someone else - market your own domain name NOT somebody else's

Very good location in the heart of Carlow town. Their carvery lunch is very good and quite reasonably priced. Not a bad spot for a drink in the evening, though it can get a bit mobbed with students
