Welcome to Strokestown.ie!!
We've launched this website today as a 'one-stop-shop' for all things Strokestown.
It’s hoped that it will help people in the area, and outside of the community, to discover more about their locality.
Whether you want to visit Strokestown or surrounding areas to relax, invest in a new business or learn about the area’s rich history, Strokestown.ie will be a portal to all the resources you need to come and experience real Ireland. The website, which will be used to market the area, will include a news and updates section, business and community directory as well as features and profiles of people and businesses who have recently moved to the town.
The launch takes place this afternoon at 5pm at Luna Accessories in the town, and it’s hoped that other areas in the county may follow suit to enhance their tourism industry as well as create more of an impact online.
Any businesses or groups who wish to be listed on the new website, or anyone who has interesting facts, stories or history about the town, are asked to forward information to: email@example.com
