About the competition

So, here’s how it works. ESB Electric Ireland are donating €10,000 each to Concern, the Irish Cancer Society and the ISPCC. Teams for each of these charities will be driving across Ireland to try to win an extra €20,000 for their charity. Oh, and all the cars will be powered by tweets and Facebook likes. 

This video explains it all:

Meet the Concern team

Our team will feature Mundy and Joe Rooney who will travel in a DeLorean car from Dublin to Galway and back. They will be stopping for a range of challenges en route. Ian O’Flynn has been selected as the driver of the Concern A Team - check it out on Electric Ireland’s Facebook page.

We need your tweets!
