www.Boards.ie - discuss the weather, cycling and motors online.forum irish ireland discussion
Originally created under the name Cloud Boards, the first purpose Boards.ie was to discuss the game Quake. It became so popular that an
upgrade was needed, and in that upgrade, the founder of Cloud Boards
decided to broaden the scope of the forum and include general Irish
issues of the day.
Today, while still primarily an Irish focused board, the forums contained within this board appeal to a broad array of interests ranging from home appliances to soccer to politics. The forums contain well over a million threads and almost a half a million users, making it one of the largest Irish sites on the internet. The most read forums include politics, rugby, and television; however, those are by no means its focus. The board is not designed for persons under thirteen years of age and content may not be suitable for them.
