Iarnród Éireann Offering Free Travel to Irish Non-profits

Iarnród Éireann Irish rail is supporting the work of local Community Groups, Sports, Clubs, Voluntary Bodies, Charities and other such groups during 2016/17. We are offering FREE TRAIN TRAVEL, on an agreed return journey for up to 100 groups, of up to 50 people at a time.

Iarnród Éireann and TheJournal.ie have launched Journeys with TheJournal.ie, an initiative to support organisations and groups in the voluntary, community, sporting and charity sector. Journeys with TheJournal.ie, will provide 100 groups with a free group travel return journey for up to 50 people per group, meaning 5,000 free journeys are on offer 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. 

The company is inviting all community, voluntary, sporting and charity groups to apply for the 100 group travel trips available. Entry forms are available at all Iarnród Éireann stations or by clicking here. Entry forms can be filled out online or posted to Corporate Communications, Iarnród Éireann, Connolly Station, Dublin 1.

The closing date for receipt of entries is 21 October, 2016.

Last year, over 900 groups and organisations applied for the scheme and benefited from ‘The Journey’s on us’. This year, with our new media partner, TheJournal.ie we hope to reach even more groups that would love to take a trip with us. The Journal.ie will also be profiling some of the worthy winners and sharing their stories on its news website.

All applications will be considered by an adjudicating panel and successful groups will be notified from 11 November, 2016.  For further information and to see terms and conditions please click here.
