The Mary Raftery Journalism Fund was established by the family and friends of campaigning investigative journalist Mary Raftery, who died in January 2012. The aim of the fund is to promote more in-depth investigative coverage of issues close to Mary’s heart and on which she focused her groundbreaking investigative work. The fund offers an opportunity for journalists to carry out detailed investigations into these areas of Irish society and to expose any injustices that might exist.
Visit www.maryrafteryfund.ie/projects/ to view broadcast and published projects from the first three rounds of the fund. Successful journalists will continue to publish and broadcast their work throughout 2013.
