Púca was founded in Dublin in 2000 by Eamon Hession (Web Factory, PaddyNet, Prommt) and was one of Europe’s very first mobile marketing and SMS gateway providers. Eileen Carroll joined in late 2001 to help develop the sales operation.
The focus was initially on brands and consumer marketing campaigns, however we soon expanded into business messaging to meet the demand from businesses and public sector organisations. Púca’s messaging software is now used by brands and businesses across Ireland and the UK.
Since these early days Púca focused on mobile technology and while our offering evolved over the years messaging has remained our core technology. Our newest release impower™ is a SaaS platform that is purpose built for contact centres where ease of use, rapid onboarding and open APIs are essential for success.
Twenty years on Eileen is at the helm as MD supported by an experienced technical and commercial team with Ronan McDermott as Customer Success Manager.
“I’m extremely proud that Púca has been a part of the ‘mobile revolution’ over the past 2 decades. So many firsts have taken place since we started but our core strength and value has always been that we go the extra mile to support our clients and partners – we aim to build lasting relationships” Eileen Carroll, Púca MD.

These little guys have been part of our company’s identity since we started. The Púca (Pooka) is a mythical shapeshifter that appears in different guises in many old Irish folk legends. Ours are the friendly kind. We like to think of them as Irish Yuru-Chara.
