About Us

Grapevine Communications is an outsourced group texting service based in the Marina Commercial Park, Cork.

Our Managing Director, Richard Butler is an entrepreneur who has been involved in GAA all his life and has keen interest in all other sports.

In recent seasons he noticed the exorbitant costs that his club and others were racking up when it came to contacting players and club members about club news. So, he devised a system whereby sports clubs could contact members quickly and easily through text.

In 2009 Richard contacted The South Cork Enterprise Board with his idea for sending out group text messages and he was fortunate enough to gain a place on the Genesis programme.This programme allowed Richard to develop his idea with others identified as businesses with a high potential start up. Since then the business has grown from sport-text to Grapevine Communications.

The core ethos of the business is that all group leaders are offered the EASIEST way possible to send out group text messages whilst ensuring a personal touch is maintained. In today's world of answering machines and automated services, Grapevine Communications would like to maintain a personal service and ensure that our customers are happy with the delivery of group SMS.

Grapevine Communications is now covering a whole range of services for different client types such as Sports-clubs, Schools, Communities, Bars, Hotels, Community alerts and other businesses.
