        Testimonials

        Dr Maura Farrell

        Community rejuvenation, development and sustainability are increasingly key issues of concern within both a community and policy context, not only from an Irish perspective, but also on an international basis. Having carried out extensive work within the context of community and rural development, the issues that lie ahead are not, should communities initiate change for survival, but how do they go about doing this? eTownz are developing a holistic online platform that will allow communities, not only to explore the advantage and disadvantages of their community, but also to provide a clear direction of progression into the future. eTownz is both innovative and novel, has an identifiable market within Ireland and beyond and can assist in bringing local, small or large communities into an age where the internet can play a key role in igniting community development and sustainability.

        “I would like to give my recommendation to Pat Kennedy and all the team at eConcepts / eTownz. I have worked with them on different web development, design and data-related projects and I found them to be extremely knowledgeable of digital services and how to bring together many aspects of a project to deliver a seamless end solution. We are currently actively working with them on two projects and look forward to working with them in the future on various projects. UL is a forward-thinking university and it’s so important that the research methodologies and findings are distributed in a coherent and suitable manner to the target audience and eConcepts / eTownz use all their experience in this area to great effect.”

        “I work with Clare Local Development company which is an organisation that supports communities and community organisations in county Clare. We’ve been working with eTownz for over four years where they have assisted in the development of community plans for a number of towns in our area. We found their approach to be innovative, professional and personable. We would recommend eTownz and look forward to seeing the development of their services in the years to come.”
