GIBO – end result is a website I am proud of
By Anne McCormack, A Cherished Mind - I recently attended an introductory web design and setup course (GIBO) which was run by Clare County Enterprise Board and Donncha was the tutor for same. The end result is a website setup I am proud of. My thanks to both GIBO for the opportunity to attend and to Donncha for all the sound advice.
Superb WordPress Training Programme: Hanna Van Aelst, Barnabaun Basketry
Before this training, I had no knowledge of WordPress or any other knowledge about building a website. The only thing I knew was that I needed one and that I wanted to build it myself. Donncha steered me through every step of the way and explained everything very clearly. I could never have done this on my own and now have a lovely working website that is getting noticed by my customers.
Excellent One to One WordPress: Regina Duffy, Banner Marquees
Donncha, thank you for all your help and continued support in updating our web site with us so it actually works instead of just being an online brochure. The whole process was simple and trouble-free, resulting in my business having a more professional web presence. Thank you for the excellent service.
Excellent Group Training provided to Tipperary Green Business Network
By Kate Walsh, TGBN Co-ordinator 2012-2015 - Donncha trained some members of Tipperary Green Business Network in setting up their websites and getting their business online using WordPress. The feedback from those attending the training programme (over 4 half days) was extremely positive. TGBN also used Donncha when we were redesigning the Tipperary Green Business Network website. He provided one to one training and responded promptly to follow-up questions I had with updating the site. For more see full testimonial.
Comprehensive and practical training from a knowledgeable instructor
Emma Hayward, Hayward Video Production - We provide professional video production services for your business, helping you to get your message to your ideal customers through online video. I did the website all by myself :) I enjoyed the training delivered by Donncha on behalf of the Local Enterprise Office (LEO) Galway as part of their 2 Day Website programme and it made a huge difference to me.

Highly recommend WordPress Training Galway LEO
I attended LEO Galway’s WordPress course in Galway in October 2015 delivered by Donncha. I am still amazed at what I have learned in just two sessions. I wouldn’t describe myself as techy at all, but had done a few courses on web related topics before. This was the first course I did where I came away with a fully functioning live website. The course is completely ‘hands on’ . For anyone in business who wants to run their own website this is definitely the course for you. Thank you Donncha. Susan Connolly.
Don’t let fear of the unknown stop you : WP Training Galway
I had no experience of websites and needed a website specifically to promote my services and events. Donncha made it sound ‘do-able’ and achievable and with his support, I found the confidence to make a start and keep going. I now feel confident to update and make changes which I had thought too difficult beforehand. I had been quoted a big figure for putting a website together so it saved me money to learn how to do it himself. I would recommend this course to everyone starting a business.
