“I’m thrilled with my new Peugeot RCZ. I had watched a recent TV3 Xccelerate review and loved the car at first sight. I was really looking forward to getting the keys and when I did, I immediately set off for a weekend to Galway to get familiar with the car – it didn’t disappoint!” said Sile.

Widely recognised around the country from her many appearances on RTE and TG4, Sile’s girl-next-door attitude has won her fans across Ireland. In October 2010 she took on the challenge of her life by reaching the top of the highest freestanding mountain in the world, Mount Kilimanjaro, in order to raise funds and create awareness for Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin. To date, over €250,000 has been raised by Síle and her fellow climbers and a TV documentary will screen on RTÉ this summer. Now presenter of TG4’s Feis & Blood talent show, Síle also fronts her own two hour live show, Shenanigans with Síle on Newstalk every Saturday from 12-2pm.

Peugeot Managing Director, George Harbourne said, “Síle is an excellent brand ambassador for Peugeot. Her enthusiasm, good looks, confidence and great sense of fun are perfect attributes to match to the Peugeot brand values of style and innovation. We very much look forward to working with Síle throughout 2011 to help increase the awareness of the Peugeot brand in Ireland, through her high public profile.”

Retailing from €37,395, plus dealer delivery related charges, Peugeot’s RCZ is host to an array of standard comfort and safety equipment including leather upholstery, leather steering wheel, 18” alloy wheels, an active rear spoiler, twin sports exhaust, auto headlights and wipers, dual zone air conditioning, Bluetooth, ESP, electronic brake force distribution, ABS, cruise control and speed limiter and front and rear parking aid. The 2.0 HDi 163bhp sports coupe qualifies for €156 annual road tax.
