Carr New Home 2020 ABOUT CARR COMMUNICATIONS

OUR COMPANY

As one of Ireland’s longest-running communications companies, Carr Communications has become a household brand name for media, public relations, communications, and business / management training and development. Our reputation for handling media crises and preparing people for media has become such that other Public Relations companies bring their clients to our TV and radio studios to help them prepare responses for difficult issues and interviews.

Since the 1970s, the company has rapidly evolved in response to customer need, moving for example, in the early eighties into the production of training and promotional videotapes and TV programmes. At the same time, we set up a Public Relations Division, which now services major indigenous and multinational companies and state bodies.

Our training moved from open programmes (although these continue to be part of what the company offers) to on-going in-depth communications based consultancy with organisations and their management teams. We created a centre of expertise in ‘Management & Business’ training. We gave our Unit this title to denote the fact that the Unit provides a full range of programmes for managers and leaders, all designed to help deliver real business results and outcomes.

We also developed specialist areas such as speech writing, providing dozens of speeches each week for business and political speakers.

By the mid-eighties, the company was a major exporter, providing training and development consultancy in 15 overseas countries. By the mid-nineties, the company was the market leader. The majority of Carr Communications’ work is repeat or referred business.

In early 2008 Carr Communications recognised the emerging force of digital media within the communications landscape. A decision was taken to establish a Digital Media Unit that would recognise the diversity of messages and audiences under most organisations’ remit and be able to provide digital media solutions to meet these needs. Our Digital Media services provide a highly relevant resource to advise our clients on actions and approaches in this age of podcast, Web 2.0 and viral marketing.

The company is an affiliate of Cohn & Wolfe, an international Public Relations agency with 60 offices worldwide and over 1,000 employees, giving Carr Communications instant access to global reach.

The company is led by Managing Director Tony Hughes. Tony and executive director Donal Cronin are our shareholders. Joining the two of them on our Board of Directors is our non-executive chairman, Eddie Shaw.
