Athenry Website

A wonderful collection of historical accounts, news, folklore, books and stories about a little medieval walled town nestled in beautiful County Galway, Ireland.

The brief

During the initial planning and research stage of the project we established the following:

Finbarr O'Regan
To create a comprehensive set of taxonomies and automated management delivery system that allows both editors and readers to easily search, filter and sort listings and anticipates an ever growing archive.
Directory website managing historical records.
Anyone interested in the history of Athenry.
Find, read and share stories.


Editorial, newspaper-esque design throughout with large typewriter fonts, diagonal lines and splashes of bright colour to enhance the users experience and help the user know intuitively where they are in the website.


This website is a fine example of dynamic content management. Each record post automatically presents the reader with the archive it belongs to, links to similar articles, maps and videos (if entered), featured records and linked records. Exploring the site is easy, informative and fun. Functions include:

Finbarr O'Regan‘s thoughts on the website and working together with Follyfox Design:

Testimonial for O'Regan's Athenry Excellent and professional. I am very impressed with my new website and the follow up service Rita has provided. From start to finish Rita has been articulate, transparent and warm. Rita explained each step with patience and clarity. She really took the time to understand our project and the result is a website of beauty and depth. It is all that I wanted and more. I would recommend Rita and FollyFox Design without hesitation.
