Founded in 1975, Geography Publications specialises in publishing books of Irish regional History, Geography and Biography

Geography PublicationsIts most ambitious venture is the publication of a County History and Society series, which will endeavour to assemble a library of county histories for all of Ireland. To date twenty-one counties are now completed. The most recent volume is Longford: History & Society.

Each volume in this series, by incorporating the work of outsider and insider, builds up comprehensive insights into the respective study areas. The individual books comprise a collection of specialist essays arranged chronologically and based wherever possible on the entity of the county. The volumes are profusely illustrated with maps and photographs.

Our History and Biography Series contains a vast array of books such as The Queen's Last Map-Maker: Richard Bartlett in Ireland 1600-3, John O'Leary: A study in Irish Separatism and The Golden Vale of Ivowen. Biographies cover major figures in Irish history such Thomas Davis, Daniel O'Connell, Fr John Murphy of Boolavogue, Maurice Davin First President of the GAA and John Sadleir M.P.

We are proud to say that we support Irish jobs and small enterprises by producing and manufacturing all our books in Ireland.

NEW PUBLICATION: Something About Home: New Writing on Migration and Belonging

Something About Home is a unique anthology that provides an invigorating array of creative responses to the experience of living with, and between, two worlds. Editor Liam Harte has judiciously assembled over 60 original works of poetry, fiction and non-fiction by writers of all ages, from across Ireland and Britain, who offer richly varied perspectives on what it feels like to move from one country to another – and sometimes back again. Full of absorbing subject matter, this searching collection of poetry and prose introduces readers to strong, individual voices whose work is specific in its reference but universal in its resonance.

What makes Something About Home so compelling is that it showcases exciting new material by award-winning writers alongside vibrant and eclectic work by fresh literary talents. Most of these emergent voices are female and for many this is their first foray into print. While each author strikes a distinctive note, readers will find pleasurable echoes between individual works and eavesdrop on intriguing cross-talk between writers.

Eschewing cliché and keeping sentimentality in check, the poetry and prose in this volume take us beyond stereotypes into recognisable realities and unexpected horizons. By turns lyrical and acerbic, rueful and compassionate, Something About Home will captivate readers and open their minds to new writing that is relevant, revelatory and thoroughly accomplished.
