students Diandra Xavier and Darragh Reck of Dublin and Lorraine Cronin and Clare Cullen of Mayo are taking part in the Eurotrip 3 Challenge, launched last week by Minister for European Affairs, Lucinda Creighton (above).
The challenge involves the two teams competing in a number of tasks while travelling across five EU countries in seven days. The most important task? Getting a job in each country.
Hosted by the Talk2eu.ie website, the competition aims to divert young Irish emigrants away from countries like Australia and Canada and send them towards Europe.
