Pintail Ltd is a professional services company, based in Blackrock, Co. Dublin.

Established 2001.

The company was founded by its current management team, Ciarán Clissmann and Michelle Dempsey, in 2001, following ten years of EU project experience in Ireland and two years working in Brussels for the Commission. Some 90% of current company activity is in EU proposals and project management, business consultancy, project monitoring and evaluation, with the remainder in software development, custom R&D and quality assurance. The company employs five people and is actively recruiting.

Pintail focuses on securing and managing projects funded by competitive public programmes, most notably the EU FP7 programme but also all other EU programmes and Irish national initiatives (PRTLI and SFI, for example). The company has established an excellent reputation for close, effective collaboration with research principals and has an exceptional track record in securing research funding and supporting researchers in the management and delivery of funded projects.
