Irish Emigrants Are Invited to ‘Come Home’ with CurrencyFair

Competition is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for those wanting to
return to Ireland

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Over the past decade, CurrencyFair has helped Irish nationals move
abroad by providing low-cost money transfers without compromise. Now,
the international money transfer service is helping those who want to
return home with a uniquely Irish competition.


CurrencyFair is offering Irish people living abroad the chance to win* a
relocation package valued at €30,000 to go toward the costs of returning
to Ireland, including a year of rental accommodation, flights and car
insurance.

To enter, Irish emigrants are invited to visit www.currencyfair.com/comehome
to tell CurrencyFair what home means to them and why the time is right
to return to Ireland by sharing stories, photos and videos. Entries for
the competition close on August 31, 2019, and one deserving winner will
be chosen by a panel of three judges.

There are about three-and-a-half million Irish citizens currently
living outside of Ireland. When you think about why they might like to
come back, it boils down to a single common reason: Ireland is home,”
said Jarlath Regan, creator and host of An Irishman Abroad
podcast and CurrencyFair brand ambassador. “The chance to win a
competition like this could be life changing for someone simply wanting
to come back to Ireland.”

Regan joins other notable Irish personalities who will select a winner,
including one of Ireland’s biggest YouTube sensations, Clisare, and
Stephen Palmer, founder of the go-to blog for Irish expats in Australia,
Irish Around Oz.

We know that moving to a new country — including returning to your home
country — can be complicated, which is why we work so hard to ensure
that moving money with us is simple, fast and safe,” said CurrencyFair
CEO, Paul Byrne. “Ireland is thriving again and it’s an exciting place
to live right now, but it’s not without its challenges for returning
emigrants. Our competition will help someone hit the ground running and
make a fresh start at home.”

CurrencyFair has always prioritized making money transfers simple and
fair, by combining the latest foreign exchange technology with 5-star,
‘excellent’ Trustpilot-rated customer service and processes that are
easy to understand and use.

For each competition entry, CurrencyFair will make a €10 donation to
Focus Ireland, the country’s leading not-for-profit working to prevent
people becoming, remaining or returning to homelessness.
