Murphy’s 'The Official Pint of Us'
Enjoy MURPHY'S Sensibly.
It’s an app you can use to get a free pint of Murphy’s at participating venues in Cork city and county, from August 6th to September 30th 2012. How does it work?
Every time it rains in Cork, we’re giving away 1000 free pints of Murphy’s. You can claim a free pint the day it rains, and redeem it that day, or during the next 3 days.How do I get involved?
1.Download and install the “When it Rains it Pours” smartphone app.
2. When it rains 2mm in one day (24 hours) at one of four locations we’re monitoring, you will be able to claim one of 1000 free pints that day.
3. Then redeem your free pint within 3 days, at one of our participating venues in Cork.
The promotion will run from August 6th – September 30th 2012. We will give away 1000 free pints every day that it rains more than 2mm during that period. The last push notification for rain will occur on the 27th September and participants will have until the 30th September to redeem their free pint.What other key rules do I need to know?
• One free pint of Murphy’s per person, per day
• Once you claim one free pint, you can’t claim another one until you’ve redeemed your existing free pint (or until your time to redeem has run out)
• Participating venues reserve the right to refuse admission or service
Yes, you need to be of legal drinking age to participate in any aspect of the promotion. On opening the app, we’ll ask you to confirm your date of birth. Participating venues, as always, ultimately reserve the right to refuse admission or service.How do I download the app?
The app is free and can be downloaded directly to your smartphone, via the App Store for Apple iOS devices, and via Google Play for Android devices.Is the app compatible with my device?
We’ve made this app for Apple and Android smartphones. It’s compatible with any iPhone (3gs, 4, 4s and future versions) using iOs software version 5 or later, and with Android devices using version 2.3 software or later. The app will also work on your Wi-Fi connected iPod touch, your iPad and on some Android tablet devices. However it isn't designed specifically for these devices and is not a 'universal app'; this means we cannot guarantee it will work perfectly on these devices. Because of the wide variety of Android devices, we’ve tried to ensure that the app works across as broad a range of these as possible. Regrettably we cannot support every device and handset however.I’ve downloaded and installed the app – what happens now?
Check the app as often as you like, any time you like, to see if we’re giving away free pints that day. If you’ve opted in to push notifications on your device, we’ll send you a push notification and let you know that we’re giving away free pints. However we can only send you notifications after 1pm. So we suggest you check the app to see if there are free pints available to be claimed.Do I need a data connection for the app to work?
Yes, you need a data connection, via Wi-Fi or mobile data, in order to participate. If the app can’t make a connection when you are attempting to claim a free pint or redeem a free pint, we’ll let you know by displaying a message on-screen. Many of our participating venues have Wi-Fi access, so please check with them.Do I need to turn on geolocation services?
No, you don’t need to turn on geolocation services, but we think it’s a better experience if you do, because we can show you where the closest participating venue is to your current location. If you turn geolocation services off, we can’t do this. You’ll still be able to view a list of participating venues on the map however.Do I need to turn on push notifications?
No, you don’t need to turn on push notifications, but again we think it’s a better experience if you do, because we can let you know when it has rained enough for you to claim a free pint. If you don’t turn on push notifications, you’ll need to check the app yourself.Will the list of participating venues change?
The list of participating venues may change during the course of the promotion. We might add or remove venues, so make sure you check the list of venues regularly.Will the list of participating venues ever include venues outside Cork?
No, the promotion is running in Cork only and all of our venues are in Cork city and county. Come and visit. It’s a great place.How do I claim a free pint of Murphy’s?
You can claim a free pint of Murphy’s by opening the app. If it’s rained enough that day we’ll give away 1000 free pints to be claimed. You’ll see the number of free pints left to claim that day; tap the CLAIM button to claim a free pint. Once you’ve tapped CLAIM, you’ll get a confirmation screen confirming that you’ve claimed one of the 1000 free pints. You can now redeem your pint from that day, and for the next 3 calendar days. Example: you claim your free pint on Sunday evening at 9:40pm. You can redeem your pint that Sunday evening and for the next 3 days; until 23:59:59 on Wednesday evening. Please bear in mind that some of our participating venues may close before that time.How can I tell how long I have left to claim my free pint?
Open the “When it Rains it Pours” app and we’ll tell you how long you have left. If you’ve opted in to push notifications, we’ll also send you a notification 1 day before your claim will expire, because we don’t want you to miss out on your free pint of Murphy’s.What if I forget to redeem a free pint I have claimed?
If the time runs out, you’ll need to wait until we’re giving away another 1000 free pints to claim another one. As above we’ll send you a notification (if you’ve opted in to push notifications) and if you’ve claimed a pint we’ll let you know in the app how many days you have left to claim.Where can I get my free pint?
The free pints of Murphy’s can be redeemed in any of our participating venues in Cork city and county. This is a Cork-only promotion. You have to be in Cork to redeem your free pint.How do I get my free pint?
You can get your free pint of Murphy’s by going into any of our participating venues and following these steps:
1. Make sure you have claimed your free pint first!
2. Open the app and hit the REDEEM button.
3. Select the venue you are in and ask your bar staff for the daily code.
4. Type in the 4 digit code and hit ENTER.
5. Show the next screen (the POUR screen) to the bar staff. Note that you’ll have 3 minutes to show the bar staff your screen.
6. Enjoy your free pint of Murphy’s!
You can now share the good news that you’ve enjoyed a free pint of Murphy’s, either via Facebook, Twitter or email. You can also see if you can claim another free pint. Please note however that you won’t be able to redeem a second free pint of Murphy’s on the same day you’ve redeemed a free pint. Once you claim you’ll have the next 3 days to redeem it.How many free pints can I get?
If it’s raining, you can get one free pint of Murphy’s per day.Can I claim more than one pint per day?
Once you’ve claimed a pint or Murphy’s, you have to redeem that pint in order to claim another one. So you can only have one active claim at any one time.Can I redeem more than one pint per day?
You can only redeem one free pint of Murphy’s per day. You can claim another pint on the same day that you’ve redeemed one, but you cannot redeem two or more pints in one day. Why? We want you to enjoy a free pint of Murphy’s and we also want encourage responsible drinking and ensure we work within industry guidelines. For more details see www.drinkaware.ie.How are you deciding whether it’s raining or not?
We’ve licensed official rainfall data from Met Eireann and are monitoring rainfall from four different locations in Cork: Moore Park (Fermoy), Sherkin Island, Roches Point and Cork Airport. If it rains over 2mm in a single calendar day in any of these locations, we’ll offer 1000 free pints to be claimed that day.What if it’s only raining in one of those locations?
If the Met office records rainfall of over 2mm in any of Moore Park (Fermoy), Sherkin Island, Roches Point or Cork Airport, we’ll give away 1000 free pints of Murphy’s that day. So it doesn’t have to be raining everywhere for the promotion to take place.What if it rains 2mm collectively among all of the locations?
We’ll only give away free pints if Met Eireann records 2mm or more of rain in at least one of the locations during a single calendar day. We’re not adding up the mm of rain across all of the locations.What happens if all of the free pints of Murphy’s aren’t claimed that day?
Every day at 12 midnight, we reset the rainfall counter and the pints counter. So if, for example, only 80% of the pints are claimed, they aren’t available for anyone to claim any more free pints once the day is over. When it rains again, we’ll give away another 1000 free pints.If it rains overnight, are you counting that as part of the rainfall? We’re counting all rainfall over a calendar day. So to get detailed on it, that’s from 00:00:01 at the start of the day to 23:59:59 at the end of the day. If rainfall exceeds 2mm in any of Moore Park (Fermoy), Sherkin Island, Roches Point or Cork Airport, we’ll give away 1000 free pints of Murphy’s that day. If you have your push notifications turned on, we will send out a notification at1pm that same day. Where are you collecting rainfall data?
We’ve licensed official rain data from Met Eireann. We are monitoring rainfall from four different locations in Cork: Moore Park (Fermoy), Sherkin Island, Roches Point and Cork Airport. For more data see www.met.ie.Where can I see a list of the participating pubs?
Download the app to see a list and map of the participating venues. The list may change during the course of the promotion. If we add a new pub, we’ll get it on the map as soon as possible, but please note that it may take up to 72 hours to add a new venue.Do I need to be in a participating venue to claim a free pint?
No, you can claim a free pint of Murphy’s at any time, in any place, assuming the promotion is running that day and enough free pints are remaining for you to claim. You can also claim a free pint in a participating venue, but you don’t have to be in one.I am outside Cork or outside Ireland, can I participate in this promotion?
The app is restricted to Ireland only in the App Store and on Google Play. If your Apple ID or Google Play accounts are registered as located outside of Ireland, you will not be able to download the app and participate.I downloaded the app in Ireland but am abroad, can I still participate?
Once you have the app and data connectivity, you can claim a free pint of Murphy’s wherever you are. If you want to redeem and enjoy your free pint however, you will need to visit one of the participating venues in Cork city and county.What is the last day of the promotion?
The last day you will be able to claim a free pint of Murphy’s will be the 27th September. So if it rains on September 27th you will have until midnight on the 30th September to redeem your pint.What data are you collecting from me?
We are collecting the following data from participants and venues:
• Location information: depending on your permissions settings and your opt-in to geolocation services, we will collect location information, where you claimed free pints of Murphy’s and where you redeemed free pints of Murphy’s
• In-app information: we will collect information regarding your usage of the app itself, in other words how often you use the app, what sections you visit within the app and how often, whether you signed up for push notifications and other related data about your “clickstream” through the app (what sections of the app you visited and in what sequence)

• Sharing information: we will collect information regarding sharing the app and elements within the app, such as sharing notifications within the app, or sharing content from within the app; if you choose to share via social networks such as Facebook and Twitter, we will collect the fact that you have shared via that network, but will not collect any personal data about you or your friends

Check that you have a data connection and compatible smartphone handset or device, that your network provider is not experiencing connectivity issues, and that the App Store and Google Play are available. If you still cannot download the app, please reboot your device and attempt to download again.I can’t install the app.
Either you don’t have a compatible smartphone or the operating system on your phone needs to be updated to the latest version.

It is free to download the Murphy’s ‘When It Rains It Pours’ App to your phone. However, some networks may charge a network fee associated with the data costs for doing so.

The Murphy’s ‘When It Rains It Pours’ App is a relatively small download and should not take long to install or update on your phone.

Please note that if there are a large number of people using the available data connection point (Wi-Fi or cellular data connection), this may reduce the download speeds available or render data connections temporarily unavailable.The app is not connecting properly when I try to claim a free pint.
Note that the app needs a data connection to claim a free pint. If you are satisfied that your data connection is working properly but still cannot claim a pint, or are seeing an error message, we recommend that you exit the app and stop it from running as an app on your phone (on both iOS and Android devices, apps may run in the background even though they are not obviously running on-screen; please check your device reference manual for how to stop an application from running on your device). Then reopen the app and try again. If this still does not work, we recommend that you reboot your device and attempt to claim again.I redeemed a pint earlier today – why can’t I redeem another one when I try?
You can only redeem one free pint of Murphy’s per day. You can claim another pint on the same day that you’ve redeemed one, but you cannot redeem two pints in one day. Why? We want you to enjoy a free pint of Murphy’s and we also encourage responsible drinking. For more details see www.drinkaware.ie.I am in an area with no phone reception – can I claim or redeem a free pint?
You do not need mobile phone reception for voice calls, in order to claim or redeem a free pint. You do need a data connection however (see below).I am in an area with no data connectivity – can I claim or redeem a free pint?
You will not be able to claim or redeem a free pint of Murphy’s without data connectivity. If you are experiencing data connection problems, either the signal is not strong enough or it may be the case that your phone is not configured to receive data. If this is the case, see if you can physically move to an area where you can claim or redeem your free pint. Check also with your network service provider as to whether you have a data package included in your plan. Contact your service provider if the problem persists.The app has frozen or is not responding…
In the unlikely event that the app freezes while in use, turn your phone off and once you turn it on again, the issue should be resolved.The app has crashed or just disappeared from my screen…
In the unlikely event that the app crashes or disappears from your phone screen, this will be resolved through restarting the app. As per above, please check your data connectivity as an unreliable data signal is most likely the cause.What if the app just does nothing, even when trying to claim or redeem?
In the unlikely event that this happens, turn your phone off and once you turn it on again, the issue should be resolved. Once you have claimed your free pint, that data will be stored in the application until the full redemption process is completed.I have another question or need to talk to someone about the app or promotion
