Bus Éireann proud to be supporting Aldi Community Games 2021

Get moving on applications!  Closing date for entries Wednesday 5 May

Bus Éireann, Ireland’s national bus company, for the second-year running is proud travel partner of the Aldi Community Games 2021. Bus Éireann is advising families interested in supporting these games to register their children at www.mycommunitygames.com by the closing date of 5 May 2021.

There are seven fun free activities among 30 different age/gender categories in all to choose from. All the games will take place virtually and entries are open across Community Games’ affiliated areas all around Ireland.

Boys and girls aged between six and 16 years can take part and there are more than 30 categories to enter from including art, model-making, dance, singing, music and much more. At a time when in person activities are restricted, this platform offers direct access to local events in your area.

All events are hosted online, and registered participants will have the opportunity to qualify for County and National finals, followed by a virtual Aldi Community Games Festival and prize-giving ceremony in June.

In 2020 over 6,000 people took part in the Community Games virtual events and each entrant received a digital certificate.  Art and Singing proved two of the more popular categories.

"Bus Éireann is at the heart of communities throughout the country, connecting people with who and what matters. Aldi Community Games also brings fun and connection to communities across Ireland and we are delighted to be their official travel partner for the second year,” said Eleanor Farrell, Bus Éireann’s Chief Commercial Officer. “The games are a fantastic initiative taking place virtually for everyone aged six to 16 and we encourage as many communities as possible to get involved."

Gerry McGuinness President of Community Games, said “I’m delighted that Bus Éireann are once again partnering with Community Games this year.  We both are in the business of connecting communities and we greatly value their support.”

Aldi Community Games launched more than 50 years ago and have provided the opportunity for young people to use their leisure time in a healthy and productive way.
