The small business specialist


I own and operate three small businesses and understand the needs, wants and fears that can come with ‘doing it yourself’. As such, I focus on helping new businesses that want a dynamic web presence, and a kick ass website that is built on cutting edge digital architecture.

WILD ATLANTIC PHOTOGRAPHY TOURS

WAPT is the other business based from my design office, next door to the wine bar. I deliver bespoke photography training and photography workshops and wine tours both here in Ireland and abroad.

My Story

Graduating in Environmental Science, I took a temporary job in advertising, designing adverts for 'Redtops', Broadsheets and magazines. I then worked over two decades in the public, private and voluntary sectors in the area of youth and adult training, project management and designing intervention programmes. All of which involved a multitude of skills, including copyright and design.

Moving to Ireland nearly ten years ago, I now design functional, user-friendly websites - an extension of my writing and photography work.

I also own a run a small business, so I understand the pressures involved and the solutions required...

Why an Eagle Logo?

To me, the Eagle is a symbol of nature, of freedom and of strength, when designing my businesses and logos, I wanted something to reflect my own beliefs, whilst retaining some link to the locality. Here's how it fits...

Long before St Patrick’s visit in 441, the Reek was known by its ancient name of Cruachán Aigli. The area around the mountain was known in Irish as ‘Aigli’.

The village of Murrisk was referred to as ‘Muiresc Aigli’ with ‘Muiresc’ meaning ‘Sea Swamp’. ‘Cruach’ in English is a variant of ‘rick’ or reek, or stacked-up hill and refers to the cone-shaped mountain. Some translators took ‘Aigli’ to mean‘Eagle’.

On foot of this interpretation, the coat of arms for Westport town incorporates an eagle and, in the nineteenth century, part of the ridge extending eastwards from the peak or Reek was still called Mount Eagle.
