“All of the Energia team would like to extend their warmest congratulations to Sean and Noreen for being crowned Ireland’s Most Christmassy Home, as well as to the runners up Tony Fitzpatrick and Christina and Philip Walker," Geoff Codd, Head of Energia Marketing and Retail Development said. 

"This year, we saw particularly impressive entries across the country, with such a high level of effort, creativity, and festive spirit, all in the name of supporting worthy causes. 

"We are delighted to have the opportunity to make donations on behalf of the winners to the Bantry Hospice Project, Wexford Hospice Project and Make-A-Wish who each play vital roles in our communities throughout the country. We would like to wish everyone throughout Ireland a very Merry Christmas from all of us here at Energia and look forward to the competition in 2022.”

Over the past six years of the nationwide competition to find the country’s most festive home, the total donated to charities by Energia on behalf of the winners has grown to €48,000.

In addition to the charity donation, Energia has also gifted each of the finalists a €500 Smart Home Store voucher.
