Our Story

We are Murray Brand and we are the consumer and brand division of Murray - Ireland's leading Independent PR Practice.

Our Story

Our mission is to create compelling, fully integrated multi-channel, consumer PR strategies and campaigns that deliver bottom line results to our clients.

In a nutshell

Murray has a 40 year history of building and strengthening organisations through effective communications. Murray Brand’s chapter in that history is about bringing a brand’s personality to life in an engaging and impactful way.

Launched in 2010, our Consumer and Brand division was created in recognition of our clients’ need for compelling consumer strategies and campaigns that deliver bottom line results.

Since then we have worked with great brands to creatively and quantifiably unleash the power of their brand across all relevant channels and platforms.

We deliver clever strategies that excite clients and engage with audiences. Our point of difference is insight driven campaigns delivered by great people with energy, intellect and integrity.

We’re passionate communicators, curious consumers and creative spirits that share a common set of values – integrity, credibility, fresh thinking and a razor sharp focus on results.


For over 40 years, Murray have been the leading independent Corporate & Public Affairs PR practice in Ireland. We work alongside our colleagues in Murray Consultants to provide integrated PR and communications solutions to a wide range of national and international businesses.

We also offer a full service creative solution through Murray Creative – our digitally-led creative agency that combines strategic planning with technological expertise and first rate creativity.
