A NEW app for iPhones and android devices, designed specifically for The Gathering Ireland 2013, has been launched. Called Gathering Gestures, the app has been created by Tourism Ireland.

Junior Tourism Minister Michael Ring (above) launched the software, which offers a wide variety of gestures – or complimentary offers – to help visitors during their holiday.

The app, which is being promoted by Tourism Ireland, is free for people around the world to download before they arrive.

An example of a 'gesture' includes a complimentary tour of Kenmare in a 1936 vintage Buick, offered by the Sheen Falls Lodge Hotel.
