I upgraded the website software again over the weekend but managed somehow to miss the fact that one of the navigation panels on top had disappeared with the new WordPress software. Only for Gráinne spotting it it could have stayed that way for a while.
Anyway, We got it fixed this morning and even eventually figured out how to get them in alphabetical order 🙂

If you missed it then don’t worry the only difference is the layout of the navigation panel.
(Thanks again Gráinne).

This is how it used to look

This is how it used to look

Well, it’s been a long time in the mix but we’ve done an upgrade to the site (As you can see).

The main thing was to revamp the navigation system to make it easier to get access to all of the different parts of the site. Let me know what you think, whether it’s easier to find stuff. The main categories are also viewable by scrolling down the main page. Picture posts will be available to the top left, and the latest post will be available in the main box here.

Hi folks,

A few people have commented regarding the theme that is currently being used on the site and it’s difficulty in negotiating your way around, particularly regarding some of the older stuff that people are rooting through or looking for. With this in mind and while I have some time, I’m considering a change to the look and layout.

This will not affect the content, everything will still be there, merely rearrange the front page (in particular) and how things look once you delve a little deeper into the site, hopefully make it easier to find older stuff that hasn’t seen the light of day since it was put up.

I’m thinking of running a more “Magaziney” feel,  having recently very successfully transformed a Limerick based political/current affairs website. Basically, what this means is that you will be easily able to access all of the different sections of the site more or less with one click directly from the front page. a bit like the “Irish Times” or “independent” websites or some of the on-line magazine types. Things may go a little hairy from time to time over the next ten days or so, but in the end I hope to be able to give you all a far better looking, more usable site.

Now this is not just change for changes sake, it is designed to improve things. If anyone has any ideas for additions, now is the time to let me know. If you think some things should have more prominence, let me know. if you think something is missing, let me know. I’ll do my best to accommodate any and all requests, without too much guff or backchat. 🙂

Just add a comment to this page or send us an email if you have any suggestions to make, I’m going to stick this page to the front for the duration.

Bruffman George Clancy will get the big European weekend underway when he referees the European Challenge Cup final between Northampton Saints and Bourgoin at the Twickenham Stoop on Friday, May 22 (kick-off 7.45 pm).

George, who won the Munster Referee of the Year award in 2007, refereed the Churchill Cup final two years ago at Twickenham and joined Irish colleagues Alain Rolland and Alan Lewis on the IRB’s International Referee Panel last season. In a notable double for Limerick Peter Fitzgibbon, who was recently added to the International Referee Panel, will be the fourth official on duty for the Northampton Saints v Bourgoin tie. The Thomond clubman refereed Bourgoin’s semi-final win over Worcester Warriors earlier this month.

Clanwilliam and Shannon man John Lacey is a touch judge for the game along with the Limerick Lads.

This is a charity that is very close to our heart with many of our members involved. It’s aim is to raise awareness of the need for a “Lokomat” machine which will help people who are immobilised by keeping their joints, muscles and circulation moving.

The group are trying to get one of these machines placed into the Patrickswell area but they have to raise approximately €300,000. This machine will be available for use by anyone in the Munster region or even nationally. If you happen to come across anyone collecting for this very worthy cause, please do what you can to help, anyhting will be greatly appreciated.
