We were delighted to be named as one of the 15 winners of the IEDR Optimisation Fund  last year. The fund was created in 2010 to give Irish SME’s an opportunity to increase their online presence or even to create one from scratch. Each winner gets €10,000 worth of consultancy work to use on their website to improve their online presence.

We were presented with certificates by Minister for Communications Alex White in the Shelbourne Hotel last Thursday.IEDRlm
