“Thank you Peter for travelling from Belfast to Offaly for our one to one word press course , a gentle man that was so helpful and talented and who took my site as personal as it was his own , and a lot of laughs as we went along , he since has kept in contact to help me perfect it all . Super service after a year trying to get companies to come back to me , and with no joy and lucky they didn’t as then I wouldn’t have found Big Rock .” Joan O Meara, MD
