The Leap Garda Youth Diversion Project has been offered a free trip with Iarnrod Eireann on Tuesday 17 July as part of the “Take a Journey On Us” initiative.
The Leap Garda Youth Diversion Project works with young people between the ages of 12 and 18 through group work and programmes that inform and educate. The group will travel on the 10.15am service from Longford to Connolly.
Under the Journey’s on us initiative, 100 groups of up to 50 people per group in the voluntary, community, charity and sporting sector 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.
An Iarnród Éireann spokesperson said: “We wish the Leap Garda Youth diversion Project a very enjoyable trip and are delighted that we can be involved in their charity. The Journey’s on us is our way of acknowledging all the great events and initiatives that go on in communities across the country.”
