Tony McCullagh - Group editor, Dublin People Newspapers

To whom it may concern,

I write in connection with my newspaper group's business relationship with Aileen Eglington of AE Consult.

The Dublin People Group of Newspapers has been serving the city since 1987. We publish three popular weekly editions - Northside People (East), Northside People (West) and Southside People - along with a digital offering through our website and social media platforms. With a weekly print circulation of 120,000 across all three titles, the newspapers enjoy a Dublin readership of 340,000.

We have been dealing with AE Consult for over 15 years and have found them to be highly efficent, professional and competent at all times. I have enjoyed a very good working relationship with Aileen during this time and have had the pleasure of being in her company on various press trips and media events over the years.

I look after the Travel section for our newspapers and have found Aileen's input and advice to be invaluable. In particular, I believe that her knowledge of the worldwide ski market is unequalled in the Irish public relations business and she has particular expertise when it comes to Austria, which continues to be a favourite winter sports destination for Irish skiiers. She has done more to promote Austrian tourism than any other media relations professional I can think of.

I am very happy to recommend the range of PR and marketing services offered by Aileen's company and look forward to dealing with her for many years to come.
