I am pleased to announce Liam Farrell ’04 will be joining the Alumni Association as our Alumni Communications Senior Editor on April 6. He will be responsible for the writing, editing, and production of a wide range of communications, including ND Today, the Echoes newsletter, the Young Alumni Enewsletter, and the Travelin’ Irish Enews. In addition, he will oversee the Class Notes section of Notre Dame Magazine.
For the past four years, Liam has been the State Government Reporter for The Capital, a daily newspaper in Annapolis, Maryland. He covered the Maryland legislature and the executive branch. In addition, he gained experience in videography, blogging and photography. Prior to joining The Capital, Liam spent a year and a half as the City Hall Reporter for The Frederick News-Post, a daily newspaper in Frederick, Maryland, his hometown. During his time as a reporter, Liam won numerous awards from the Maryland-Delaware-D.C. Press Association.
Liam graduated Summa Cum Laude from Notre Dame in 2004 with a bachelor’s degree in American Studies and an interdisciplinary minor in Irish Studies. While he was a student, he played trumpet in the Band of the Fighting Irish. He received a master’s degree in Journalism from Columbia University in 2005.
Liam and his fiancée Lisa will be getting married in Maryland in late April. Then, they will relocate to South Bend. Please join me in welcoming Liam “back home” to Notre Dame. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
