Our website was designed to support Polish people living in Ireland - especially in Galway, by sharing with them (in their native language) information about local areas, news, events, and much more.
The website has sections, such us:
- Local news – updated daily with the most recent and important breaking news in the area.
- Classifieds section (polish: ‘ogłoszenia’) - here every registered member can buy, sell, place a job offer or even offer an empty seat in his car on the way to airport.
- Forum section - is a great place for our community to exchange ideas, thoughts, information and discuss politics and current affairs.
- Local maps - with the most recommended places to visit, government buildings, local businesses and many other places of interest.
- Transport guide and map – explains how to use community transport in local area and Ireland
- Entertainment section - gives up to date information about what happens and what is going to happen in the area.
- Company listing section - list of local businesses with an option to add your own.
Every day we are expanding all our sections to provide users with more and more up to date information. To be closer to our society we work closely with various Polish initiatives in Ireland, such as Polish Schools and Many others. Any of their news, events and initiatives are supported and advertised by us.
All of the sections are free, but for those who would like to promote their own businesses we prepared options for premium - paid, advertising space.
The history of our website begun in 2005 when the first website for Polish community in county Galway was created. Eventually it evolved into www.Galway.pl and proved to be a great success.
On the 1st July 2010 it passed the invisible barrier of 1000 unique visitors in one day. By the end of 2012 every day up to 3000 unique visitors were visiting that one, single website! Every month we have well over 200,000 visits!
Based on Irish CENSUS 2011, there is more than 105’000 Poles living in Ireland which shows that we reach out to a very large percentage of Polish community living in Ireland.
