On Thursday last September 12th, Portlaoise Parish launched an App for Portlaoise Town in the Chambers of Laois County Hall. The App will provide information for visitors and locals alike including a full business listing of Portlaoise.
The App is free to download and is available in Android and Apple format on www.portlaoiseapp.ie or through Google Play and the App Store.
The App is in six sections:
- Community and Local
- Food and Drink
- Where to Stay
- Things to Do
- What’s On
Each business will be listed with the following information; image of premises, brief description, opening hours, contact number, direct access to website, direct phone dial and Google map location.
A feature of the App will be a voucher section whereby a business can display a special offer/promotion which in turn will promote their business and benefit the consumer.
At the launch on Thursday, County Manager, Peter Carey said that he believes the App will be of huge benefit to the town of Portlaoise and delighted to have the it displayed in a professional digital format.
Dom Reddin from Laois Tourism said he was delighted to be involved with the development of the App and hope that all groups, organisations and businesses would promote the App through their social and print media outlets.
MonsignorJohn Byrne thanked all involved for bringing the App to fruition.
