magine, if you will, one sparkling, state-of-the-place little website dedicated to one sparkling little purple patch of Wicklow.
Now, try to imagine just one eejit dedicating ten years of their life – seven days a week, 365 days a year – to that one little website.
Hey, welcome to de Greystones Guide, and me, Paul Byrne, the big eejit in question. Part town crier, part village idiot, with the Guide, you get a press agent, journalist, layout artist, marketing whizz, copywriter, photographer, poster service, agony uncle and the biggest local media outlet around (with over 468,000 hits a month in 2023) all rolled into one.
Packed with interviews, news, events, the occasional bout of nonsense and the kind of historical archives that would make Derek Paine twerk in his grave, the Guide is the crazy glue that holds this town together, celebrating our past and looking to our future whilst, most importantly, making sure that we have a comprehensive record of Greystones’ today. Along with a fair idea of what’s happening tomorrow too.
