Inis Communications is a PR and Social Media agency serving clients across the island of Ireland, the UK and Europe. We do PR for print, broadcast and online media. We offer website content and social media for a range of organisations and small businesses.
We have over 19 years’ experience, working with professional services, SME’s, public agencies, and not-for-profits across a range of sectors. Past and present clients include: Fáilte Ireland, Teagasc, Údarás na Gaeltachta, Irish Congress of Trade Unions (ICTU), Union of Students in Ireland (USI), Irish Lights, WestBIC, the IFPO, and B&B Ireland.
In the North-West, Inis Communications has worked with Donegal County Council, Derry City Council, Atlantic Technological University (ATU), Foyle Port, Donegal LEO, and award-winning social enterprise Spraoi agus Sport.
Inis Communications is run by director Trish Hegarty. Trish spent 14 years in the print and broadcast industries – mainly The Irish Times, and the BBC.
As a print and broadcast journalist, Trish covered everything from top news stories to local events: Interviewing, reporting, researching, writing, editing for The Irish Times and RTE. At the BBC, her work included presenting and producing news bulletins and programmes.
This gave her an expert understanding of how the news agenda works, and of the editorial decision-making process. She has retained and developed her contacts across media contacts with reporters, correspondents, editors, and producers.
Trish Hegarty set up Inis Communications in 2004. She knew that her mix of local and national, print and broadcast experience gave her the right skills and insights to deliver effective PR. It also gave her the perfect writing and editorial skills for digital, website and social media content – a key part of effective online PR today, and an essential element of Inis Communications’ services.
“For one launch event alone, Inis Communications secured national television, radio and newspaper coverage worth over 30 times the cost to us. The PR supplied by Trish Hegarty boosts our public profile in a much more powerful and cost effective way than advertising could do.”
