Collaborations and Partners

Local Partners

CLRG/Cork City Council Philip Monahan Bursary

Cork City Council is an important partner for the CLRG. With the support of Chief Executive, Ann Doherty, and the Director of HR, Michael Burke, we have jointly initiated the Philip Monahan Bursary Scheme. Every two years, a bursary is awarded to a staff member in Cork City Council to undertake a Masters programme (MRes Government and Politics) and write a thesis on a local government topic. The first two bursary award winners were:


2016    Pat Ruane

2018    Liam Ronayne

Liam Ronayne in 2018 with Lord Mayor
