"Copy writing esp for website publications is often challenging for those who are wishing to reach out to grow their brand and presence. Websites are the 24/7 front of house by which a business no matter how small or large is judged.
Lora is very aware of this and how setting the right tone of being welcoming, drawing in people while informing them, can be achieved. Her grasp of the target audience and seeking to hit the right notes linguistically is very much a benefit when getting her to write copy."

I have been aware of Lora's writing for many years and have had the pleasure of working with her. I can only give the highest of praise for her creative abilities, her integrity and high standards.
I've known Lora O'Brien for several years. Her keen mind, polymathic knowledge of several fields, and fine character has always been a joy to work with and to be around. Indeed, it's almost intimidating how much this person knows. Almost, but her charm and wit wins every time.
Lora's attention to detail and willingness to ask the necessary hard questions without flinching is a testament to her drive and dedication to completing projects and tasks - always at a very high standard. I can't recommend Lora high enough. Ireland needs more people like her.
Lora did a networking social media outreach for me for the Festival which was highly successful. I have worked with her over the years and made use of the Cultural Centre. Lora is also an author of two celtic cultural books, and a Free-Lance Journalist. I would recommend her as a Business Professional, excellent Author and Journalist,. and she makes herself available to work with both the business and community sector if required.
I have worked with and for Lora on a number of occasions in differing tourism and heritage roles over the past number of years. Naturally creative and an excellent communicator, Lora combines a sound marketing and literary prowess, a strong commitment to community tourism through her involvement in the new branding and marketing campaign for Roscommon Tourism and leading a major new investment for Rathcroghan Visitor Centre. She brings skill, energy and a fresh approach to her work which I can highly recommend.
Lora is an excellent communicator & has a gift with words. She is able to get a message across clearly to our potential customer & persuade them to buy... Her personality, experience, character & innate ability make her an excellent writer. Lora has written wonderful submissions for me that show that we care about our business and that we care about our potential clients' time and energy. Clear communication is essential when you are looking for new business & this is where Lora shines!

Lora is a highly talented and dedicated writer, with an envious turn of phrase. I would recommend looking at any of her works for examples, as they are clear and concise, and deliver exactly what the reader is looking for. She is creative, extremely detailed and driven, and I would never hesitate to recommend her writing skills, whether commercial or otherwise, to colleagues. She remains my first and only recommendation when someone is looking to utilise a professional writer.

The copywriters at Commercial Writing Ireland (Write Ireland) make marketing easy. Not just the writing, which is more focused than what we can achieve in house, but the fresh ideas, new angles that a professional business writer can bring you round to. I've found working with a commercial writer has been a very useful process for my business.
