When Books Ireland founding publisher, Jeremy Addis, announced publication was to cease in late 2013, the Wordwell team couldn’t bear to see this wonderful publication disappear and took over its production in early 2014. The ‘new’ Books Ireland is now available in both print and digital formats and is enjoying a new lease of life with a full-colour format, a layout revamp, a move to bi-monthly publication and a recently launched mobile app. It celebrated its 40th anniversary in March 2016.
Books Ireland is committted to the publication of responsible critique of literary output in Ireland and offers a unique insight into the latest trends and developments in the Irish book world. Each issue contains a series of reviews, from indepth two-page features to shorter synopsis of all recent titles in our First Flush listing. The Book Notes section provides the latest news on festivals, literary awards and our talented contributors leave no page unturned in their quest to review as many new Irish titles as possible within 60 pages.
