I am delighted that Damien at Seomra Ranga.com took time out to review my Know Your Ireland for iPad app, here’s a snippet of the positive review, read the full review on the Seomra Ranaga website.

My 6th class pupils enjoyed the revision class using the app and it held their attention for quite a while. They haven’t taken the quiz yet, but it’s sure to awaken their naturally competitive streak!
