Nenagh Ormond Brass Band this Monday travelled with Iarnród Éireann today from Nenagh to Heuston station under its Jouney on Us initiative.
A spokesman for Nenagh Ormond Brass Band said: “A huge thank you to all in Iarnród Éireann for making this possible for us. We have been really looking forward to the day. We practice 52 times a year and play for 30 local events every year in our community so it is nice to be able to give our members a day out.”
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 Nenagh Ormond Brass Band 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.”
