Kenny, who was Taoiseach for more than six years before resigning in 2017, will serve as a non-executive director when he joins the board next month.

The Fine Gael-linked firm says he will provide guidance on its “future strategic direction”.

Heneghan provides consultancy in corporate communications, financial communications, public affairs, crisis communications and digital communications.

Its clients include National Broadband Ireland (which is delivering the National Broadband Plan), the media agency MediaCom, the Irish SME Association (ISME), SSE Renewables and Cork University Hospital.

The company was founded by Pat Heneghan, who was a long time advisor to former Taoiseach and Fine Gael leader Dr Garret FitzGerald.

Its Director of Public Affairs, Eoghan Ó Neachtain, previously served as government press secretary during the first year of Kenny’s term as Taoiseach, having been appointed to the job under the preceding Fianna Fáil-led government.

In a statement Kenny said he has “known Heneghan Strategic Communications for many years”.

“I look forward to supporting a dynamic team with an ambitious vision for the future of the company,” he added.

The firm’s managing director, Nigel Heneghan, said he is “honoured” that the former Taoiseach has agreed to join the board.
