Following acceptance of the nomination by the PRII Fellowship Committee, the PRII National Council has awarded the PRII Fellowship 2022 to Mary Murphy.
A Fellow of the PRII is recognised as a leader in the public relations and communications profession. Those who have earned the designation have done so by being highly skilled and in positions of leadership in their organisation and the profession. These individuals have made a notable contribution to the development of the profession which this honour also seeks to recognise.
Fellows make the commitment to support the ongoing work and development of the profession and the Public Relations Institute of Ireland.
Mary Murphy has been a respected leader in the Irish public relations profession for more than forty years. Her pioneering work for local authorities and the public sector has enabled key policies and infrastructure projects to modernise Ireland. Mary’s work helped people to understand innovative concepts like water conservation and waste recycling
She has always been a strong advocate of the work of the Public Relations Institute of Ireland and is one of the Judges of The Awards for Excellence in Public Relations. As a Fellow of the PRII, Mary will continue to be an advocate and representative for the industry.
Mary started her career in 1982 in John McMahon and Partners and later became Director of Public Relations at Carr Communications. In 1996 she established her own agency, Business, Environment and Crisis Communications where she advised local authorities and Government departments and won an Award for Excellence in Public Relations for the ‘Race Against Waste campaign’ in 2006. The agency was acquired in 1998 by RPS Group Ltd, an international multi-disciplinary consulting firm specialising in infrastructure and environmental projects. Mary continued to work with RPS, as a Director, until 2012. Since then, Mary has continued to provide crisis communications counsel to a number of clients and has undertaken voluntary activities including with The Sanctuary where she works closely with Sister Stanislaus Kennedy.
