2020 news

A Statement from Ms. Liz O’Donnell, Chairperson, Road Safety Authority

On behalf of the Board of the Road Safety Authority (RSA) I wish to confirm that Ms. Moyagh Murdock, Chief Executive has decided to move on to take up a new role as Chief Executive with Insurance Ireland and will be leaving the RSA at the end of March 2020.

As Chairperson of the Board I acknowledge the important contribution Moyagh has made over the past 6 years. Since becoming its Chief Executive in 2014, Moyagh steered the RSA through a period in which has seen road deaths reduce by 25%. In particular, her advocacy and work with Government and other key stakeholders in leading the implementation of the Government Road Safety Strategy as well her support for the introduction of various policy and legislative changes that have taken place during her tenure, have helped ensure Ireland’s road safety performance is now 2nd in the EU. 

As CEO of the RSA, she has guided the RSA through a period of organisational restructuring and modernising of services through the use of technology such as Online Driver Licences, Commercial Vehicle Road Worthiness CVORI, as well as improving Driver Test wait times to their lowest levels ever.

Moyagh has certainly enhanced the reputation of the RSA both in Ireland and internationally and the Board and I are confident that she leaves the RSA pointed on a strong positive trajectory for further improvements in road safety.

The Board and I wish Moyagh all the very best as she takes up her new position with Insurance Ireland.

While we are disappointed to lose Moyagh, the Board and staff of the RSA are united in our common goal of working to save lives on Ireland’s roads.

In light of this development the Board will now commence the formal process to select a new Chief Executive.
