Established in 1976, Books Ireland magazine remains the only publication of its kind with a dedicated focus on books of Irish interest, Irish publisher or Irish author. Published bi-monthly, it lists and reviews c. 1000 books per year and is THE essential guide to the world of Irish books and writing.

‘Books Ireland provides a breathing space, a garden if you will, where literature may continue to be valued for its own sake and discussed and appreciated in a climate of intellectual freedom and relaxation.’ Eamonn Kelly, playwright and award-winning short-storyist.

Latest issue

In this issue we have a guide to just some of the Irish related literary events happening around the world on and around this St Patrick’s Day, while a discussion at the 2017 Frankfurt Book Fair, led to a thread of New Zealand related articles exploring the contrasts and similarities between our island nations, particularly on the subject of native language publishing.

To mark International Women’s Day on 8 March, we have three reviews on this theme. Amy Prendergast looks at the letters of Maria Edgeworth; Jennifer Martin reviews ‘Hanna Sheehy Skeffington, Suffragette and Sinn Féiner: her memoirs and political writings’; while Clare Hayes-Brady takes issue with Mary Kenny’s ‘Am I a Feminist? Are You?’.

Finally, we are delighted to announce the commencement of a new addition to Books Ireland: Fred Johnston, will be casting his eye over poetry books in his column In:Verse. We also carry on with our regular features on début authors, crime fiction and books as Gaeilge, plus the comprehensive new release listings in First Flush—the backbone of Books Ireland.
