Ireland’s state-owned gas company Bord Gais ƒireann is hunting for its

first retained domestic PR consultancy.



The Cork-based company, which supplies natural gas to 250,000 customers

across Ireland, has issued a public call for tender from Irish PR

agencies to assist its small in-house team of two.



PR manager Miriam Farrelly said that Bord Gais was looking for a

comprehensive support service covering strategic advice, consumer

relations, public affairs, events management and internal communications

for its 800 staff.



She added that Bord Gais had used consultancies on an ad hoc project

basis but was now seeking a longer term relationship. ‘The energy

business has become such a busy industry that we feel the need for added

expertise,’ she said. ‘You also get an extra resource in terms of ideas

as well as a fresh, unrehearsed viewpoint.’
