Eads4u.com came about largely as result
of hearing the tail end of a radio program where a group of Irish
business people complained about the price of advertising. We set
the site up to provide everyone with a platform on which they could
display their products or service they provided.
then did we begin to appreciate exactly what those people were experiencing,
advertising is indeed expensive, however we are tackling the problem,
and we invite you to post your business details, items for sale
or wanted, even things you wish to give away and we would be most
appreciative if you recommend us to your friends and colleagues.
