Mornington entrepreneur scores with new sports app

Fergus grimes

Frustrated by the lack of opportunities in the job market, young entrepreneur Fergus Grimes from Mornington chose to go it alone and launch a live scores app GAA – Beo Score.

The 23-year-old, who graduated from the Business with Entrepreneurship course at the Galway Mayo Institute of Technology GMIT, has already invested up to € 25,000 in setting up the app – and he’s determined to keep going and risk a success.

He showed his own intrinsic aptitude for the business by starting the app business after failing in 23 applications.

Instead of wallowing in negativity, he chose to kick off Score Beo and get back on track.

The app is available on iOS and Android and provides live stats and information such as scores and line-ups from around the world in men’s and women’s Gaelic soccer, hurling and camogie matches.

The app offers matches, live scores, line-ups and streaming information as well as fixtures, results and draws. The latest GAA news is also included.

“The GAA community has such a dedicated fan base, the least they deserve is an app to match that. Users can expect all the GAA content they could dream of in one all-in-one place.

The app solves a real problem that GAA fans around the world are experiencing – the inability to find reliable match updates, news, and fixtures in one convenient place.

“There is no doubt that getting reliable game updates is relevant, but given the current climate it makes it even more relevant with fans not being able to attend games. Some matches aren’t live streamed either, so we fix that and bring the match to you.

“I am very passionate about our national games and the Irish language. Having been abroad for a short time, I know how important it is for people to stay in touch with their team. This is why the Irish name has been a key choice for me to ensure that we are connected to this language and culture. “

Score Beo, he added, has already been downloaded in over 50 countries. It is also already at the top of the Irish sports app download charts. The app’s first sponsors include Mc Cauley’s in Meath, Briscoe’s in Louth, GMIT in Galway and Mayo, Dominos in Limerick and FKM in Monaghan.
