Many thanks for the kind words. I'm actually thinking about closing it down at the moment. I'm fed up with the dedicated server crashing repeatedly under the load. It costs me over 100 euro a month and all it gives me is a pain in the hole.
.The leg and camera work are greatly appreciated whilst we tend to ignore the cost of maintaining sites like yours . Like this site it would be a great loss and if it does , understandably , happen to go , thanks for all the effort for a brilliant resource .
Thanks again. I'm just in a foul mood and sick of the constant fight against DoS attacks. There are some real dozy fuckers out there who think it's fun to ruin an honest website.
What a shame.
I don't know what criteria needs to be met but have you thought of going for Heritage Lottery Funding (there is a area division for northern Ireland). I don't know if there is something similar in the Irish Republic.
