Our Publications

We are very proud of all of our publications and authors, but some of our works have got a bit more attention than others. As briefly mentioned above, in 1990, we published the third and best edition Annals of the Kingdom of Ireland by The Four Masters, a great masterpiece of Irish history, which is in more demand than ever. Jarlath Waldron’s publication, Maamtrasna The Murders and The Mystery was a bestseller and remained at the number one spot for eight weeks in succession, while Wendy Walsh and Charles Nelson’s Flowers of Mayo won two design awards, including the Best Overall Book of the Year Award.
