Paul McCarthy - Development Director

Paul McCarthy leads Clare’s efforts to engage alumni and friends to maintain their connection with Clare and each other throughout their lives. Clare's Development Office is charged by the Master and the Fellowship to help ensure the College has the resources to meet its immediate and long-term needs. Our current focus is on the care and renewal of the fabric of the College, particularly Old Court. As always, Clare must also attract and devote resources to attracting outstanding staff, Fellows and students. Paul is grateful to all those who support the College and make the unique Clare experience accessible to today’s students. 

Paul has considerable experience in philanthropic endeavours and comes to Clare having completed several successful philanthropic campaigns in the UK, Ireland, Asia and the USA.

He has specialised in philanthropy for Higher Education and the Arts, and has worked in the charity sector too. Paul is a former broadcaster and documentary maker, both in Ireland and the UK.
