Dr. Tom Clonan, a lecturer for the MA in Public Relations and MA in Public Affairs and Political Communication was part of a play called "Soldier Still".
The creative process behind the play involved interviews with fourteen former and current soldiers from the Irish Defence Force, British Special Forces and the Bosnian war and two civilans (Irish and Bosnian).
PR practitioner, author and lecturer Andy Green challenged notions of public relations in the latest – the third - of his Dublin Conversations, proudly hosted by the MAPR in TU Dublin Aungier St in July.
