At the heart of the discussion was the use of the ‘Shop Carrickfergus’ app, which has recently been updated and now features a directory section, the latest deals, Wi-Fi spots and upcoming events in the town.

The Mayor, Councillor Lindsay Millar, said: “I was delighted to attend the Bloggers’ Brunch in Carrickfergus, at which the Shop Carrickfergus App was showcased to a number of Northern Ireland’s leading social media influencers and personalities.

“I am really impressed by the app. It is a fantastic way to keep the public up the date with the very latest news, offers and goings on in the town – and best of all, it’s free.”

The Shop Carrickfergus app is free and available to download on Apple or Android.
