things toget you throgh þe all ireland

All Ireland Sundays Saturdays are arguably the biggest days on the Irish calendar. Whether it be big ball or small ball, here are a few apps which can help all interested parties have a cracking day.

Dublin can be a maze at times. Throw a few pints into the equation and you could spend the first half wandering around in circles after taking a 30 second toilet break and loosing your mates! Google Maps is very simple and straight forward, showing you the best route to get to your destination from your location.

If that destination is a little too from from your location, Hailo a cab. Even if you don’t have any cash on you at the time, Hailo can be linked with your bank card for fast payments. Better still, if Coppers goes a little wild after learning Sam or Liam are coming home with you and the bank card goes missing altogether, you can still get a taxi back to that couch you were promised, once you didn’t lose your phone!

screen568x568We all know that the GAA can send pulses racing more than most sports, but what’s the harm in a little flutter with your friends? BetYou allows you to place a bet on pretty much anything with friends and strangers, taking the focus away from the evil bookies! Download it and get a free bet to get you up and running!

Snapchat seems to have shaken the majority of its “just for teens” title, as more and more people are downloading the self-destructing picture taking app. For those not familiar with the more intricate ins and outs, Snapchat also has a story feature where you can send all your pics for friends to have a gawk when they have a few minutes. This was recently developed to include Live. Live allows people attending large events to send their pictures to one gigantic story. GOOS3D can unfortunately not promise there will be one for the All Ireland’s, but it’s a handy app regardless to show everyone back home who couldn’t make the trip to Croaker!

This won’t be for everyone, but for those who like to have a little bit of live commentary while viewing the action first hand, they can download RTÉ Radio Player, where RTÉ Radio One can be streamed for free! Especially handy, as many mobile phone manufacturers have viewed the FM transmitters within phones as expendable.

Finally, if your phone has a power saving mode, use it! If not, turn down the brightness and turn off the screen when not in use. All Ireland Sunday is a long day! No harm having the charger in the pocket for when you stop for a bite to eat. Most places will charge you back up.
