                              call centre contract


eircom has signed a further call centre contract with The Capita Group Plc. The

existing terms and conditions of employment.

Managing Director of eircom Retail, Cathal Magee, said:  'This deal puts in
place a new flexible operating model that will deliver tailored customer
services for residential and business customers.  Capita have been selected for
their strong track record in providing cost effective call centre solutions
across a number of industry sectors in the UK and Ireland. This is a good deal
for transferring staff who will continue to do the same work and will open up
new opportunities for them within Capita.'

Rod Aldridge, Executive Chairman of Capita, commented: 'We are very pleased to
be extending our relationship with eircom. Our partnership has already delivered
real benefits to eircom and their customers and we look forward to building on
this. We welcome all those staff who are transferring with the contract and who
will continue to play a key role in supporting eircom and helping Capita to
continue building our business in Ireland.'
