Hume is the first to receive the Public Relations Institute of Ireland

award ceremony last week.



The PRII’s president Francis Carty said Hume had won the award because

of his ‘outstanding contribution to the understanding and practice of

‘This is a man who for nearly 30 years has dedicated his life to

bringing together communities and peoples and governments who have been

bitterly opposed to one another,’ said Carty.
