Simon?s ?Green Army? app ready for Irish football fans

Posted: 7 June, 2016

A handy app has been developed for Irish football fans heading to Euros and to raise awareness for the Dublin Simon Community

The aim of the app is both a bit of fun and to keep the Irish fans safe. There are maps of the main cities with amenities like pubs, atms, train stations, the stadiums and more.  You can enter and save where you're staying - so you can show taxi drivers at 2am if you forget! You can also save meeting points which would be handy if the phone networks go down at the stadium where you are.  There are also emergency contact numbers - for the Irish Embassy, the VHI, Aviva, Laya Healthcare, GloHealth, the AA Ireland – as well as numbers for AIB and Bank Ireland for those tricky situations when bank cards get lost or stolen.

The app is completely free and supported by the Irish Embassy in Paris, the AA Ireland, the Dublin Simon Community and DIT.

App available on Apple App Store at:

Android version arriving this week, so keep an eye on social media for #simonsgreenarmy
