So it is the day after the night before and I am proudly here in my office holding my award as winner of the Web Designer Category in the JCI Galway TechGate Awards 2015.

Firstly I’ll give a quick explanation of the awards. The awards seek to recognise and reward the achievement of the best technology start-ups, websites and enterprises in the West of Ireland. The competition highlights the accomplishments of technology entrepreneurs and rewards entrepreneur’s endeavours with the Galway and West of Ireland region.

The award for me is my first since I created Cityweb and it is something that I will cherish for the rest of my life. Your first award is always a memorable one and to win one in front of many of my friends and colleagues who I have met and have got to know during my time in Galway.

There were so many great companies involved last night which makes it even more special that I won my category. I hope that this will be the first of many awards for Cityweb as it continues to grow. Thank you Keith and the rest of the JCI Galway team and everyone else for the support and well wishes.
