Bride Rosney, long-standing press and PR adviser to Irish president

Mary Robinson, is to leave at the end of this year.



A special adviser to the president since 1990, Rosney will leave her

post in December at the end of Robinson’s seven-year term. She has no

plans to take up another post in either the government service or the

private sector.



Aided by two colleagues, Rosney acts as Robinson’s spokesperson and

gives general advice on press relations, diary engagements and foreign

visits.



She was previously a member of Robinson’s presidential election campaign

committee and an election agent during Robinson’s time as a senator

before that.



Robinson is due to decide over the next two months whether or not she

will seek a second seven-year term as president and Rosney explained

that the end of the current term was an appropriate time for her to

quit.



’It is a very demanding job and I have given it my all, but I think it’s

time to take a break now,’ said Rosney.
