You can even write under a pseudonym [some employers are a bit fussy].

Maybe you simply have a little bit of news or a picture you think should appear here…. a one off bit of news for the town to hear…

Maybe…. you came here once on your summer holidays….

We don’t even mind if you’re a blow in 😉 All we know is

  1. Hi everyone.

    First of all, well done on setting up a superb site, very useful information.

    My family & I are moving to Ballyboughal in the next few weeks. I’m interested to know what sort of broadband service you can get in or around Ballyboughal and what others find to be the best service. Also, do UPC service the area for TV/Broadband (Fibre) ?

    Thanks in advance.

    p.s. sorry if I have placed this in the wrong area.


  2. Rory and family,

    welcome to Ballyboughal and congratulations on your new home 🙂

    Broadband really depends on the area within Ballyboughal -silly as it sounds, but a question @aido would be better versed in answering. I’ll pass this to him.

    Sorry it took a while to get back to you and see you soon I’m sure.


  3. Yep Peter is correct! Sorry for the long(er) delay in my reply. Im not sure of Peters speeds but they are fairly decent. I’m on Vodafone landline (ex BT Ireland) and I hit a constant 5MB down.

    If you’re thinking of Mobile Broadband I’d suggest you check them all at your new home. I’ve had Voda and o2 both a waste but I now also have a Three WIFI dongle and it has excellent coverage out here.

    No UPC or Fibre out here just good old twisted copper.

    Hope that helps

  4. Thanks guys, appreciate the replies. We are getting a landline activated so once we know the number it will probably be a lot earier to figure out the speed. Was thinking of the digiweb wireless solution, anyone have that ?
