Bolting a Butterfly
"It was like bolting a butterfly to a bullet.."

“A recent trip to Kennedy Space Station, Florida unearthed the most perfect quote to describe our team. I could not be prouder of the team we have brought together and the work we do. And in many ways, it feels as if we have only just started..”

Social Responsibility

Social Responsibility is part of our core ethos. Over the years, we have contributed (staff time, knowledge, and funds) to support a wide range of causes, charities, and community initiatives such as The Simon Community which helps homeless people, Flourish community mental health centre in Sligo, the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association and several grassroots Community Development groups. More recently our social responsibility efforts have supported the Ukrainian Hub “Palyanytsya” in Carrick on Shannon and Rapid Response Ukraine, Sligo.

Momentum has a strong commitment to social responsibility. Our colleagues regularly unite to raise funds for charities and support important initiatives.

We are proud to nurture and sustain our local communities. Through donations and employee volunteering efforts, we support many amazing charities and local development groups.
