2017 – 70/20 – Site Refresh

If you visited the site in the last few weeks, the appearance hasn’t been as good as usual. From today, the site has a new theme in honour of the 70th anniversary of the founding of the band. Not to mention that the website has now been in existence for 20 years.

I think that the site is more attractive and easier to use. 

As usual, any comments or suggestions are welcome by email to paul@dooagh.com
