Bernard "Bunny" Carr (born 31 July 1927) is an Irish former television presenter. On RTÉ, he hosted such shows as Quicksilver and Going Strong[1] and was a public supporter and fundraiser for the aid organisation Gorta. In 1964 he won a Jacob's Award for his television series, Teen Talk. Carr was born and raised in Clontarf, Dublin.[2]

In 1973, Carr founded Carr Communications [3] a public relations and communications training company, the first of its kind in Ireland.[4] He was joined by media advisers Tom Savage and Terry Prone who helped him develop and expand the company's services in Ireland and abroad. He retired from the company in the mid-1990s, remaining as non-executive Chairman until 2004.[citation needed]

Bunny Carr was involved with the Gorta organisation in the early 1980s, and rumours circulated that he had absconded with funds.[2] In 1998 he suffered a heart attack and had cancer diagnosed by chance during the treatment. Bunny Carr lives in Sutton, Dublin. He is registered blind, having been diagnosed with macular degeneration in 2011.[5]
