This Paralympics App Is Perfect For Following Team Ireland In Tokyo

After a long wait, the Paralympics are here.

The Paralympics officially begin today and over the next two weeks, Team Ireland will again inspire the nation.

Just as during the Olympics, the eight hour time difference between Tokyo and Ireland will mean there will be alarm clocks set for the wee hours of the morning.

29 Irish athletes will be taking part at the games across a number of different disciplines. With the time difference between Ireland and Japan, some of the events they will be featuring in will be taking place at some very awkward times.

Luckily there is a brilliant app that will help you keep track of when our athletes will be in action.

The official Olympics and Paralympics app - which you might still have on your phone from earlier this month - has a number of features, but the most useful comes in the way it displays the schedule of the game.

It allows you to filter the results by nation, meaning once you select Ireland, every event featuring an Irish athlete will be displayed in chronological order. It also gives the results in your local time, meaning there is no need to calculate the difference in Japan.

It will also tell what athletes are competing in a given event.

It is worth noting that all times are given in 24-hour format.

You can download the app on your Apple device here, or on Android here.

This will help make sure you don't miss any Irish medals, something we hope to see a few of in the coming weeks.
