Commenting, Deliveroo Ireland Manager Liam Cox said:


“We’re proud of our record of bringing amazing meals direct to the Irish public. We want to reach more customers in 2019 but we know we can’t reach every part of Ireland, yet. We wanted to give the public the chance to make sure their street doesn’t miss out on Deliveroo and the huge range of restaurants it gives them access to so we’re letting people directly influence where we expand to next. The winning town or city won’t be the only place we expand to in 2019, but winning is one way to guarantee 2019 will amazing meals on demand to your door.”
