Several years ago you put us in touch with Exsite Communications to develop a web page – as you may know we are a voluntary organizationwith little money and a few athletes but this year we managed to get one of our athetes (Natalya Coyle) to the Olympics.
I just wanted to send a belated email to thank yourself, IIA and ExsiteCommunications. Exsite have been very generous and patient with their support over the last two years. It took us a while in Pentathlon Ireland to get going as we were rebranding and refocusing but Exsite stuck with us.
They have contributed greatly to developing, maintaining and hosting the Pentathlon Ireland website over the last two years and this in conjunction with our new brand has helped us communicate news of our sport in a more professional way. The website Exsite developed has helped us promote our branding / image and has provided a clear and concise website to convey our athletes successes and their progress.
Without Exsite’s generosity and the Irish Internet Association referrals we may not have been able to revamp the old website. We received excellent comments from other sporting organizations – the OCI, Irish Sports council, UIPM (www.pentathlon.org) and others.
The Website has also aided in keeping our current athletes aware of events, trainingschedules and competitions in a more logical manner. Unfortunately due to the workload we never managed to formally announce our new website to the masses – something we need to work on. It has been very much appreciated by all involved in Pentathlon Ireland and we are extremely grateful.
This clean, crisp website fits in nicely with our strategy for developing the sport in Ireland and working towards the World Youth A Championships which we will be hosting in Olympic year 2016 when we hope to have four athletes at the Olympics. Majority of our athletes come from the Irish Pony Club Tetrathlon but we hope to widen our catchment area and getmore schools involved in Schools Biathles over the coming years so weneed to get our website out there - watch this space at
