Rail travel worth up to €200,000 to be provided in new initiative from Iarnród Éireann
Iarnród Éireann has launched a new community initiative to support organisations and groups in the voluntary, community, sporting and charity sector.
The initiative, entitled “The Journey’s On Us”, will provide up to €200,000 worth of group travel to organisations in the sector who apply for the scheme in 2012.
Under the initiative, 100 groups of up to 50 people per group will receive a free return group travel journey from Iarnród Éireann, across any of the company’s services. The travel facilities will be ideal in particular for organisations bringing a group to a special event, or as part of a specific support to the members of the group which requires travel.
Groups are invited to apply for the new scheme through a number of means, including:
- Entry forms are available at all Ianród Éireann stations
- Online entry form at http://www.irishrail.ie/journeys
- By post to Corporate Communications, Iarnród Éireann, Connolly Station, Dublin 1.
The closing date for receipt of entries is Friday 25th May.
All applications will be considered by an adjudicating panel, involving representatives of Volunteer Ireland and The Wheel, as well as Iarnród Éireann. The 100 successful groups will be notified in June.
Further information and terms and conditions are available at http://www.irishrail.ie/journeys .
