I wrote a post a few weeks back about Irish web standards compliant websites and development agencies. In that post I listed commercial and non-commercial Irish web standards compliant websites and development agencies who develop to the web standards, in response to queries from participants on a talk I gave for the Irish Internet Association.
In the meantime, Colm O’Riordan of Communicraft has come back to me pointing out another site developed by Communicraft which is web standards compliant. The site is called Crann – it is the Centre for Research on Adaptive Nanostructures and Nanodevices based in Trinity College Dublin.
If there are any other Irish web standards compliant sites or development agencies out there that I have missed, feel free to contact me and I’ll happily give you a mention.

Tom, what’s your comment on the other candidates’ web sites? e.g. my own Dominic Hannigan in Meath and Paddy McCormack in Kildare? You will note that we don’t have blogs either. Also, have you seen the really awful web sites put up by the FG and PD candidates. Internet circa 1995, I’d say.
What about the Shinners? Are you chicken to look at theirs and comment negatively? Weeeeellll, you’re OK! Cos, they don’t even have candidate web sites. Hard to type a keyboard with a ballot box in one hand and an Armalite in the other, I suppose.
A couple of things, I think you left your comment on the wrong post, your comment is more appropriate to my post on the websites of the Fianna Fail candidates, than one on standards compliant websites. If you want to leave the comment again on the correct post I will delete it off this one.
Another thing – you left the web address of your site as http://www.patwabbitte.org/ – unfortunately this doesn’t appear to be a valid web site address.
You didn’t give me web site addresses of your candidates Dominic and Paddy so I could have a look at them.
In any case, I was really comenting on their sites because of the complete lack of understanding of the technology behind blogging displayed by whoever was responsible for their sites and because they appeared to be trying to cash in on the positive media blogging is receiving of late.
In the case of your own candidates, they really should get blogs up – it is not technically difficult to do, and it would confer considerable advantages on them – esp. seeing as none of their competition has a blog!
Thanks, Tom. Bit busy with the oul elections and so on. I’ll leave it up to yourself re where to leave the postings.
BTW, did I meet your dad one time out in Strasbourg or Brussels? I came across a Tom Raftery who was an FG MEP…
Well, I dunno if you met him, but yes my father was a FG MEP from 1984 to 1989.
