The European Commission is offering free rail travel across the EU for 15,000 young people in Europe who reach 18 on July 1st next.

140 of the rail passes are available for Irish teenagers as part of the 'Discover EU' initiative. Successful participants can travel for up to 30 days to four EU destinations but will have to fund their own meals and accommodation.

Grace Bolton of the EU Commission office in Dublin says applicants must answer a quiz to be in with a chance to win a ticket.
