Local Hero in Ireland

Local Heroes launches in Ireland!

Posted on 26/07/2018

A year after launching nationally in the UK, Local Heroes has launched in Ireland! Backed by Bord Gáis Energy, Local Heroes will initially operate in Dublin to connect customers with plumbers and heating engineers, with further services and areas to be added in the near future.

Local Heroes will provide Irish customers with a seamless experience when looking for a vetted and trusted tradesperson, from searching for a job and receiving a price estimate, through to confirmation and online payment. All work is covered by a 12 month guarantee, backed by Bord Gáis Energy.

Mark Prentice, Managing Director of Bord Gáis Energy, says “I am delighted to announce that Local Heroes is now up and running in Ireland. This follows 10 months of great collaboration between the teams in the UK and our team here. A big thanks to everyone involved from around the business in getting this project over the line.”

Mat Moakes, Head of Local Heroes in the UK, added, “After lots of hard work from teams in the UK and in Ireland, it’s great that we’re piloting in Dublin. Local Heroes is committed to providing a great customer experience and we’re looking forward to connecting even more customers with reliable tradespeople.”
