Carrigaline App Launched

Writes Jack White

A new app for South Cork was launched last week, entitled ‘Carrigaline’. Though assuming the name Carrigaline, the app encapsulates all of South Cork, including Carrigaline, Crosshaven, Passage West & Monkstown, the lower harbour and surrounds.

Delivered by The Carrigdhoun Newspaper and Crosshaven-Carrigaline Credit Union, and app developers Booniverse, (and partly sponsored by McCarthy Insurance Group), the app is free to the end user and is available for download now either on Apple’s App Store for iPhone users or Google Play for android users.

Towns At Your Fingertips:

The app lists businesses, clubs, oganisations, attractions, hikes and trails, useful information and much more, from all over South Cork. Whether you’re looking for a place to eat, things to do, or even wanting to take a self-guided tour, this app is the place to be.

Speaking on behalf of The Carrigdhoun Newspaper who are operating the app, Director Jack White said: “Compatible with both iPhone and Android, accessibility and usability are paramount and we’re sure that users of all ages will enjoy their time exploring the app.” Continuing, he said, “We’re proud to bring to Carrigaline, Crosshaven and South Cork as a whole, an app that will help community and business life to thrive in this digital age, providing a piece of key digital infrastructure for the area. We wish to sincerely thank all who have supported the app so far, especially our partners Crosshaven-Carrigaline Credit Union whose vision for the future of this area is something with which we’re delighted to be associated.

The app was launched on Friday, September 27th at a well-attended reception in The Carrigaline Court Hotel with local business people, members, staff and committee of Crosshaven-Carrigalne Credit Union and local politicians present. Councillors Liam O’Connor FG and Marcia D’Alton IND were joined by Cllr Seamus McGrath who deputised for The County Mayor as well as TD Michael McGrath.

Guests were given a presentation on the app by Jack White, before Crosshaven-Carrigaline Credit Union Chairperson Sean Roberts spoke, highlighting the Credit Union’s pride to be associated with the app. Cllr Seamus McGrath spoke on behalf of the County Mayor, praising the efforts of The Carrigdhoun Newspaper and The Crosshaven-Carrigaline Credit Union in bringing the app to the market and speaking of its importance in providing digital infrastructure to the area.

Though in its infancy much content has already been added to the app, with significantly more to come online over the next few weeks.

With clubs and societies being free of charge on the app, The Carrigdhoun Newspaper is encouraging club PRO’s to get in touch now on:

Business owners too are being encouraged to support the app and great value yearly subscriptions are now available, again by emailing:
