Warning Note To Eircom/Eir Customers Visiting courtguinness.com

Owing to the resurgence of our Irish stalker visiting now from the Eircom/Eir networks O will shortly be shutting access to this website to certain IP address ranges from the Eircom/Eir networks.

I regret the inconvenience this will cause to some legitimate visitors from the Eircom/Eir networks who should be able to rightfully enjoy their normal visits and enjoy the content on this website.

I have previously given an open fair warning on this website during the month of December 2020 that this action would be taken should the stalker not cease and desist.

      Happy 8th Birthday To This Website

      12th June marks the 8th Birthday of this website in its WordPress incarnation. 12 years ago this website started with 5 content items. 3 posts and 2 content pages. It used the WordPress 2011 template. Since then it has grown exponentially not just in terms of content but in terms of visitors and functionality too.

      On 12th June 2012 the only functionality after text was a contact form, a fairly simple thing. That form has not changed much but there are now contact forms all over the website for visitors to use. We now have in no particular order, a shop, podcasts, a business magazine, a networking platform, videos, a deal making platform, jobs, a business club, downloads and much more. The number of content items at 16,000.

      We had a root and branch rebuild earlier this year and that has improved performance. This website started with 50 visitors a month this has now grown to an average of 14,000 visitors a month. I have picked up seven stalkers and one sadly remains.

      Looking to the future I have some plans to increase audio and video usage on this website and some other exciting functionality plans two of which are subject to regulatory approval. I may also carry more advertising. New content will remain static for the time being at about 30 items a month.

      As I close would like to take this opportunity to thank all visitors for popping by over the years and helping shape this site into it what it is today.

      Best regards
