Go to Castlebar
Castlebar.ie may be a little too parochial to be hugely successful in the long term. Over the years you have provided a wonderful service to the people of Castlebar and you have proved what can be achieved with limited resources In my opinion, there may now be a need to expand what you have developed and aim for a large official Mayo site. This should be part subsidised by Mayo Co Co, or some other agency or company and also be semi-commercial. 'Mayo on the move' is a purely commercial web site and lacks current information as well as many other items that castlebar.ie do so well. On a Mayo site, you could embrace all the towns, list all the up-coming activities such as football events, singing lounges, discos etc. You could also list a jobs section, a buy and sell, car sales (the list is almost endless). Many people now travel to different towns to work, also to restaurants, cinemas, pubs, shopping, arts events, college night classes etc. These establishments might be happy to have a county-wide web site on which to advertise.
Thanks for your comments. Excellent suggestions. Music and pub events are listed on www.ansceal.ie hosted on our server. With increased funding and revenue we would like to expand to a wider audience bringing the highly successful Castlebar formula to lots more towns around the county and even further afield.
