In total since it’s launch in August 2009, there have been almost 20,000 visits to the website and just over 50,000 pages viewed, but there has been a noticeable rise in numbers throughout this year. And that’s because we have been working hard to build the right kind of website that can help to (1) act as a decent newswire/information source for the James’ Street/Thomas Street, and the general Dublin 8 area, and (2) build the organisations’ online profile.
