Emer Murnaghan receives her award from Peter Quinn, former president of Engineers Ireland

EMER Murnaghan, head of responsible sustainable business at Hillsborough headquartered Graham, has been awarded a prestigious fellowship by Presidential Invitation from Engineers Ireland, the professional body for engineers in Ireland.

With more than 25,000 members from every discipline of engineering, Engineers Ireland is the voice of the engineering profession on the island. Having represented the engineering profession since 1835, it is one of the oldest and largest professional bodies in Ireland.

Emer, who is also vice-president of the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), has more than 30 years' experience of working in construction, in both project and performance management roles.

In her current role with Graham she has ownership for ensuring its corporate responsibility is reflected in how it delivers projects and services across the organisation; and the overarching impact it has on society.

Peter Quinn, former president of Engineers Ireland, said: “Fellows of Engineers Ireland are recognised as the true leaders of the engineering profession and are regarded as highly skilled and in positions of leadership in the engineering community. They contribute to the future of engineering and promote excellence among the industry and contribute to the ongoing goals of Engineers Ireland.”

Emer said: “I love my job and I love engineering. I'm passionate about creating infrastructure that has a positive legacy and which is sympathetic to the environment surrounding it and the people who use it.”
