About Us

The Kinsale App is an initiative designed by community volunteers for the community and its visitors. The first directory app that gives businesses the opportunity to get onto mobile platforms for both Android & iPhone.

The Kinsale App has been created by volunteers Siobhán Green (Marketing), Donna Buckley (Design), Ken Forde (I.T.), students of Kinsale's CoderDojo and is part funded by West Cork Development Partnership. It has the potential to raise a significant annual income towards the building of Kinsale's Sports & Community Centre (Sáile). It will also be the first app of its kind for the town, and a valuable asset to local businesses and visitors alike.

It is FREE to download for all, and all advertising revenue generated will go towards the project.

The Sáile Sports & Community Centre Project is an initiative by the KRD Community Association, a non profit sporting body made up of local and rural people committed to better the lives of the residents of Kinsale and its environs.

Our goal is to provide a multi-purpose sports & community centre with year round indoor facilities appealing to all sections of the community. It will include a Sports/Community/Conference Hall, a gymnasium, a childcare facility, a dance/martial arts/boxing studio, meeting rooms & kitchen. It is being built on a phased basis.

Phase 1 includes four 5-a-side multi-surface all weather pitches, a tennis and basketball court, a community garden & orchard and was opened by President Mary McAleese in October 2010.

Phase 2 will be the sports and community centre for which we are currently fundraising.
