Clerkin Consulting

Intertrade Ireland

Irish businesses looking to dip their toe in international markets have the advantage of a foreign market right on their doorstep: trading with Northern Ireland (or trading in the Republic of Ireland if you are a Northern Ireland-based business) can be a logical first step, given our geographical proximity and cultural similarities.

InterTradeIreland is co-funded by the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment (DETE) and the Department for the Economy (DFE) in Northern Ireland. Its work focuses entirely on facilitating cross-border trade, assisting small businesses to explore new markets and develop new products, processes and services.

Clerkin Consulting is an experienced business consultancy for SME’s. We are based in County Monaghan, right on the border, and over the past twenty years, we have worked with numerous businesses on both sides to ensure successful cross-border trading.

Over the years, we have formed highly effective partnerships with agencies including InterTradeIreland, so we know what supports may be available to your business and whether funding may be available to cover the cost of business consultancy services.

Our cross-border business coaching services include examining differences in supply chain & logistics and navigating manufacturing complexities, so that your business can seamlessly transition into a new market. Helping SME’s to thrive on both sides of the border is what drives us.
