IrishCentral launches new website redesign today

A new focus on social and mobile

NEW YORK, Jan. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- IrishCentral, the largest Irish media site in North America, today unveiled its redesigned website,


IrishCentral's fresh responsive design, provides users a wonderful experience across mobile and desktop devices, enabling seamless social sharing.

Founder Niall O'Dowd said "IrishCentral wanted a creative new vision for our site, encompassing all we have learned in our first few years when we quickly grew to be the largest Irish site in America. We hired a full creative, editorial and design team including New York based creative agency Mayday Mayday Mayday to reimagine our digital experience."

Co-founder Joe Pennisi added, "With an intuitive navigation, readers will now find more of their favorite content easier. The new dynamic design includes a new emphasis on sport and an expanded business section, featuring Irish American influencers and their contributions to Irish Heritage."

In 2014, IrishCentral is renewing its focus on the dynamic innovation and entrepreneurship being led by the next generation of Irish American business leaders.

Today, IrishCentral also announces the first ever "Power 50" ranking of the most powerful Irish Americans, led by Vice President Joe Biden followed by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, GOP top 2016 hopeful Paul Ryan, Anne Sweeney (co-chair of Disney Media), and Maureen Dowd of The New York Times.

"We set out to create a new worldly image of the Irish and we have been amazed at how strong and remarkable that image is; from roots to politics to arts, culture, and sport, the Irish are clearly an amazing success story," said Niall O'Dowd.
