Welcome to our Irish books website, launched in September 2009


Irish authors Joyce, Yeats, Beckett and O’Casey have created a literary reputation in Ireland unsurpassed by any other country of the same size and have created an environment both conducive and challenging to modern day Irish writers.

Yeats urged his successors:

            “Irish poets, learn your trade,
             sing whatever is well made,     
             scorn the sort now growing up
             all out of shape from toe to top.”

and Heaney, Muldoon, Banville and McGahern  have responded.
