Interrailing Packages inspiring the next
generation of entrepreneurs

Interrailing Packages recently teamed up with renowned charity, Young Enterprise Northern Ireland, to support young people developing their business skills.

Working in partnership with the education and business sector, Young Enterprise Northern Ireland (YENI) strives to develop the entrepreneurial skills and aspirations of young people aged four to 25.

Interrailing Packages’ Managing Director, Donal McKenna, who started his successful interrail travel and accommodation business in 2009, spoke at a workshop at the City of Armagh High School on the topic ‘Entrepreneurship & The World of Digital Media Marketing’.

Donal commented: “Of course it is a cliché, but young people really are our future and it was an honour to be invited to speak and share my experiences at one of YENI’s events.

“I was also very impressed with the commitment and interest shown by the young people in attendance, they were certainly very tuned into the digital marketing world, which was great to see.

“Starting off in the business world, particularly in today’s new economy, can be challenging but I have no doubt that with YENI’s support, some of the young people I met will soon be heading their own companies and teams.”
