A new communications agency has been established by two well known Cork business people with a focus on changing how businesses communicate their message to the media and to their audiences and a new focus on creating signature events for businesses. The new agency will be called Maxxiuum ( and is headed by Lorraine O’Neill and Michael Mulcahy. Speaking at the announcement that took place at the National Space Centre in Midleton, Lorraine O’ Neill said:

“For over 25 years I have been involved in communicating the message of many different clients in many different ways, from public relations to marketing to social media to events and with my recent experience in running for local politics, I have gained a new perspective on how communicating a message to an audience can be delivered. I have worked with Michael on many projects over the years and we have a great synergy in always believing in delivering only the best results in anything we take on. Our focus with Maxxiuum is about being director led for our clients and seeking to maximise the potential that clients already have internally and getting that message viewed successfully on an external basis so that it benefits the client, their business and their image. We will also focus on Special Occasions for businesses and I have a great belief that a 5th, 25th or 50th anniversary of a business should be marked with a Special Occasion for that business that will benefit the business, its employees, its clients and its community and will seek to work with clients in this area”.

Michael Mulcahy said:

“Lorraine and I have worked together for many year on a range of projects during that time and her great sense of style and delivery in all areas of life will be an ideal fit as we develop Maxxiuum. Across my existing businesses we engage with over one thousand clients on the Island of Ireland and I see clearly the need for a change in focus on how businesses and organisations manage their image and profile and with Maxxiuum I believe we have something really different to offer clients”.
