A new app has been launched allowing the public to locate their nearest sports club, covering over 30 organisations including the IRFU, Swim Ireland and Athletics Ireland.

The Federation of Irish Sport is behind the Vodafone-sponsored app, using location-based services and GPS technologies to create a grassroots network of sports clubs across every county in Ireland. This new venture is the brainchild of four-time All-Star Dublin footballer Sinead Goldrick (below).

GameDay works by allowing users to search by sport, county and local clubs. Each club involved has a profile with their contact details, website, social media links and directions to their grounds using a combination of GPS and Google Maps.

Clubs can create their own profile for free on the GameDay website - The GameDay app is now available to download in the App Store by searching 'GameDay FIS' and the Play Store by searching 'Gameday'.
