Every Christmas for the past 14years Mick and Rita Giblin have been raising money for the Palliative Care Service at Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital by decorating their home at Westcourt. In 2017 they were runners up in Energia Ireland’s “Most Christmassy Home” competition.
The many families around Drogheda that enjoy decorating their houses at Christmas will be delighted to hear that Energia has launched its annual competition to find ‘Ireland’s Most Christmassy Home’.
Now in its sixth year, Energia, one of Ireland’s leading energy providers, is looking for households in Louth to enter the competition to be crowned ‘Ireland’s Most Christmassy Home’ and be in with the chance to win up to €6,000 for their chosen charity.
To enter, simply share a photograph of your home decorated for the festive season. Full details on how to enter are available at: www.energia.ie/imch-entries
To date, Energia has donated €36,000 to charities across Ireland on behalf of the winners, and this year that figure will rise to €48,000. Previous winners have donated to charities including Alzheimer’s Action Adare, Arklow RNLI, and Wexford Homecare Hospice.

The winner will receive €6,000 for the charity of their choice, while the second and third place runners up will receive €4,000 and €2,000 respectively. In addition to the charity donation, Energia will also gift each of the finalists a €500 Smart Home Store voucher.
Households have until midnight on the 5th of December to submit a photograph of their outdoor Christmas decorations and light displays online to enter. Energia’s elves will then review all applications and select 6 finalists before announcing the shortlist on Monday the 13th of December. Members of the public will then be able to vote for their favourite home by SMS up until Sunday, December 19th. The winners will be announced on Monday, December 20th.
Geoff Codd, Head of Energia Marketing and Retail Development commented: “Since it first began, the Ireland’s Most Christmassy Home competition has become a tradition for us at Energia and for many people around the country, as much a part of Christmas as the tree or the turkey. We are delighted to be able to help to spread festive cheer and good spirits, while also supporting worthy causes. The Energia team are excited to see what Louth households have in store for us this year and wish all contestants good luck and a merry Christmas.”
