The Mary Raftery Journalism Fund was established by the friends and family of 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 society and to expose any injustices that might exist.

The Mary Raftery Journalism Fund (MRJF) is delighted to announce a new fundraising collaboration with artist Brian Maguire who has kindly agreed to donate the proceeds from the sale of his unique print ‘War Changes Its Address – Aleppo March 2017’ to the Fund.
The print is based on a work featured as part of a new exhibition by Brian Maguire, ‘War Changes Its Address: The Aleppo Paintings’, an extraordinary group of paintings resulting from a visit to Syria in 2017. The exhibition runs in the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA) from Friday, 26th January until Sunday, 6th May.
