Joanne Murphy is a true asset to any event she is associated with.  Working with her at Galway 70.3 was a pure pleasure.  Her professionalism and passion for her work is undeniable.  The energy she brings to an event enhances everyone’s experience, it gives the athletes a very positive memory which in turn brings them back.  I would recommend her for any event and can’t wait to work with her again in the future.

Joanne performed the MC role at our Annual Gala Evening for CIPD Ireland Western Region for the last couple of years. Joanne is a consummate professional and leaves nothing to chance in her detailed pre-event preparatory work with her client. Her effervescent style and ability to captivate a large audience is priceless. She brought a true panache to our events and as Chairperson of CIPD Ireland Western Region I give Joanne my highest endorsement for this type of work.

Streets of Galway 

Joanne has been MC at the Annual Galway City Harriers Streets of Galway 8k Race for the past two years and her addition to the team has added enormously to the event. We have found her to be extremely professional and a pleasure to deal with. Joanne has a great voice and a natural love of sport. Her infectious enthusiasm brought huge smiles to competitors as they lined up anxiously on the start line and even more as they crossed the line exhausted to hear their name called. Her experience of dealing with the timing equipment and sound technician made our job much easier. We would highly recommend Joanne, she had her research thoroughly done, and worked tirelessly throughout the event to ensure that it was a wonderful day for all involved.

Dublin City Triathlon 

Joanne Murphy 'performed' at our event. I say performed because calling her an announcer would not do the performance justice! She was really fantastic. She got the crowd going, encouraged the 2,000 participants as they made their way to the finish, picking out names and faces in a very professional and polished manner. We booked Joanne immediately for our next event.

She is also more than just an MC and is happy to immerse herself into the event which shows great commitment. I have also worked with her on IRONMAN events in Ireland and the U.K. I would encourage anyone considering using an MC to book Jo as she will not let you down
