Wicklow County Council launch 1916 app and it’s pretty damn cool

Because the 1916 Rising is so close to home, we feel like we just can't get enough info about it. We want to know it all. 

Well, now you can. Wicklow County Council has launched a mobile phone app called 1916WicklowLife – and it's really great. 

You'll find snippets from newspapers, telling you exactly what happened on this day 100 years ago.

As well as that, the app displays advertisements, photos and events that happened way back then. It'll feel like all the events from 1916 are just sitting inside your pocket. 

You can even see what the dentist, school and a concert was like back then, and get a laugh from the little quirks and occasions. 

The app is available on both Android and iPhone. And, honestly, it's really worth the download.
