Ireland: Blog Digest [vanity post]

July 22nd, 2008 · No Comments · Off-topic

Things have been a little quiet here as I was away last week in Atlanta, Georgia on business.  While it was nice, given our current Summer, to get some heat into the bones, I’m not sure I’m made for that much heat!

Irish Times: PR Keeping up appearances

July 12th, 2008 · 2 Comments · Public Relations

Shane Hegarty has a piece in this weekend’s Irish Times on the (potential) impact of the downturn on the PR business in Ireland. You wouldn’t have thought it this week, however. The Government’s announcement that widespread cutbacks would include a halving of the PR, consultants and advertising budget was a sign that hard times may […]

Ireland: Interview with Vincent Browne

July 3rd, 2008 · No Comments · Off-topic

Marketing magazine has an interesting one-to-one with Vincent Browne covering all the areas (and media outlets) you’d expect ref: RTÉ, Independent News and Media, TV3, Village and the Sunday Tribune.

Ireland: Online media shorts…

May 28th, 2008 · 4 Comments · Public Relations

The Irish Times…. One of the Irish Times’ triumvirate of journalist bloggers, Shane Hegarty has announced he’s putting his “Present Tense” blog on ice for a while. (Interesting (to me anyway) there are over 70 comments on the post so far..). Then there were (as far as I know) two active official Irish Times blogs: […]

You may have already heard this, but I missed it.  Last week Eamon Dunphy interviewed former government press secretary Mandy Johnston.

PR and Smeedia Round Up

May 18th, 2008 · 2 Comments · Public Relations, Social Media

  Kami Huyse has a great post on "online reputation management in a Google world". This is a constant weakness for PR people so have a read and click through the presentation.

There are some things we’re just not supposed to understand…

February 23rd, 2008 · 4 Comments · Off-topic

Earlier today I had the pleasure of attending Croke Park for the Ireland-Scotland Six Nations match. Sitting in the Hogan stand we had a fantastic view and as usual there was vociferous support for both teams.  Everyone was having a great time except that is for the poor woman sitting in the row ahead of […]
