Young People Encouraged To Apply To DiscoverEU Scheme

Ireland South MEP Deirdre Clune is urging young Irish people not to miss the chance to win a month’s free travel around Europe.
Tomorrow, Tuesday (25th October) is the deadline for applications to the DiscoverEU scheme, which is currently open to those born in 2004.
35,000 travel passes are on offer Europe-wide and they can be used for up to 30 days between next March and February 2024.
DiscoverEU gives young people from all backgrounds the chance to travel around the continent, predominantly by train, discovering new cultures and building new friendships.

Many of those who have used the scheme in the past say it boosted their independence and self-confidence.

DiscoverEU is part of the Erasmus+ programme, full details and an online application form can be found on the EU’s European Youth Portal. (
