Ireland welcomes President and First Lady Obama

President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle have just finished their visit to Áras an Úachtaráin (President of Ireland's residence) where a tree planting ceremony took place to Mark the occasion. Large crowds are expected to turn out to greet the First Couple.

We would like to welcome the President and urge him to reinvigorate his stance against human rights abuses by many countries in the world today, including the US.

Céad Míle Fáilte.

Cork City Ireland Welcomes The Queen of England

Today, SketchUpIreland's home City of Cork is welcoming Queen Elizabeth.

Today she will be visiting the English Market and the Tyndall Institute before flying back to England.

We would like to congratulate Queen Elisabeth and her husband Prince Philip the Duke of Edinburgh for rising to the occasion of what has been a complicated few days of difficult speeches and acts of reconciliation between our two great nations. The Queen has been a shining example of respect and dignity during her visit to Ireland.

Go n-eirí an bothar leat, Ma'am, agus go raibh míle maith agaibh!

Kevin McCloud gives Google SketchUp the thumbs up

This article in gives a great review of modern technological features, mentioning SketchUp as a great 3D design tool for the masses.

We also had a look at the Grand Designs software which allows anyone to quickly place walls, presses, cookers and sinks etc. together and view them in 3D context. Very interesting- and only around a tenner sterling!

Fair play to Mr. McCloud.
