When-in-Ireland WordPress

Irish WordPress powered companies and a free iPod

Matt started the “company website run on WordPress” theme by posting that runs on WordPress, so here are two Irish companies that use WordPress to run their websites:

  1. Segala, a company involved in website accessability and trust. They have rather an interesting idea about content labeling. Paul Walsh, their CEO, “is Segala’s W3C advisory committee representative”. Keep an eye on them. You’ll be hearing more about them I’m sure! Oh, and if you leave a comment here, it may be entered into a link bait competition Paul’s running. He’s giving away an iPod on March 2nd. If he picks you, I’ll email you with Paul’s email address.
  2. The second website I will mention is one outside of the usual web 2.0 zone. It’s Harrington Estates, an estate agent in West Cork, Ireland. Houses are listed in posts, and interested buyers can leave a comment using the standard comment form. Thanks to the SEO friendly nature of WordPress, the site also appears on the front page of Google for related search terms! Thanks Frank for that info!

Are there any more Irish companies using WordPress that I can profile in a future post?

Update – the winner has been announced! Competition closed!

It’s a bit of fun which brought a few of us closer together! πŸ™‚ We’ll have to see if we can come up with a new game in a few weeks – we have lots of games to get rid of. I don’t want to over do it though.

Does the i in i-pod stand for Irish? have you heard that Apple are trying to patent the letter ‘i’ so if I Guinness did an i-Guinness they’d be sued?

WordPress is good because there are many free plugin you can use. In fact, it is a good idea for companies to use wordpress because this is the direction where the internet is moving.

Congratulations on winning & earning the kind words over at

and as you said “Thanks to the SEO friendly nature of WordPress”, im using it and its really helpful.

Best regards

Who has IPhone, who tested it ? I am in Europe and I want to buy one … here we don’t have it.

Hey, just looking for free iPod contests. There appear to be quite a few out there, but I guess I’m too late for this one πŸ˜‰ I’m not Irish, but I was there recently this summer. But brother married an Irish girl (Bryne) down in Wicklow area. That’s an incredibly beautiful island. I’ll be back one day.
