Irish emigrants are invited to ‘Come Home’ with CurrencyFair

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

June 19, 2019, Dublin, Ireland — 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 contest.

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 expats are invited to visit Come Home 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 contest 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 contest 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 contest 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 contest 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.
