You can Irish-up your messages with Irishmoji’s incredibly detailed stickers featuring everything you love about Ireland. Whether it’s sport or landmarks such as Kilkenny Castle or the Cliffs of Moher, Irish fry or a crisp sandwich, or classic phrases like “Scarlet” or “Deadly Buzz”, we’ve got you covered. You can even show your emotion through famous Irish faces like James Joyce and Molly Malone!

Irish Yourself – Create your very own Irishmoji!

Also added a great feature specifically for Euro2016 to celebrate the release of Irishmoji. Irish Fans will be able to get right behind the national team with our Irish Yourself feature which will enable them to create their own Irishmoji using their phone’s camera, and then send it to their mates in messages straight from the Irishmoji keyboard!

Tim Webber, Fanmoji founder, said:

“Ireland has such a deep cultural history in its buildings, landmarks and people, and along with the number of great symbols and phrases that lend themselves to emoji stickers and illustrations we thought it’d be a brilliant way to bring out the character of the country. Irishmoji was the natural name.”

“We ran a poll last month letting the people of Ireland vote on the final few things that should be in the first release of the app, and the response was amazing. Hopefully we’ve done a good job of representing the country; we certainly realise it’s an idea people are interested in.”

“We asked some of those people more questions about the app, and thanks to their feedback and the great support we’ve received so far, we’ve decided to drop the launch price from £1.49 to £0.79 (99 cent) in the hope that more people can get the Irishmoji app this way.

You’ll get 100+ Irishmojis immediately when you download the app. And, because we see this as something for the country as a whole, which we hope people will share with their friends and family, we’ve included a whole bunch of bonus Irishmojis too. As soon as you share the app, you’ll get another 20 Irishmojis, and when we hit 10,000 downloads you’ll all unlock the rest of the bonus stickers together.”

 

“We’ve been blown away by the support we’ve had, and hope we’ve done a good first job. We will continue to work hard on updates and improvements if people show they want them. ”

“Above all, we want people to have fun using the Irishmojis and creating their own through our new Irish Yourself feature. Hopefully it’s a great way to get behind the team this summer and show that support in messaging and on social.”

Illustrator Diarmuid Ó Catháin said

“I hope that people will enjoy using these new Irishmojis and adding a bit of local fun into their messaging. There has always been a distinct lack of country-specific stickers to choose from and hopefully Irishmoji will help fill that gap!”

 

“I have enjoyed the challenge of working on this project and I think that Fanmoji’s ethos of collaborating with local illustrators is great and that it helps ensure that an authentic side of the country is shown in Irishmoji.”

“I’m looking forward to getting these out there now and seeing the reaction. There’s a little something in there for everyone hopefully!”
