Centenaries & Tourism for Ireland

by julesmcdee

This is an interesting article on the possible tourism that the centenaries will create. These commemorations are a sensitive matter for the country. The argument, made by author John Gibney, is that while they might bring visitors to the country, we should not solely see these events as a way of making money.

In relation to my App, it will be available to download free of charge. Education needs to be accessible to everyone interested, so putting a price on it takes away from its sole purpose.
