Cian Raftery

Dissertation Topic and Overview: 


“The reputation and legacy of the past three Taoisigh”

Cian’s thesis will examine the reputation management of Bertie Ahern, Brian Cowen and Enda Kenny and how this shaped their legacy in the subsequent years.



Cian graduated from NUIG in 2017 and wanted to find a career that was fast-paced, ever-changing and matched his love of communicating with many people from all walks of life.


Public Relations seemed the perfect fit and TU Dublin’s Master’s programme was the ideal entry to the industry. By working with a host of different clients, meeting new people and working with some of Ireland’s biggest brands, PR is a profession Cian will excel in.


Cian is open to any gateway to the industry but hopes to work for an agency that offers the opportunity to work with a variety of clients in different sectors.
