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: The GPO Garrison Easter Week 1916: A Biographical Dictionary

The proceedings of Easter week are well known but little is known of the men and women who formed the garrison. Jimmy Wren has now filled that lacuna with the results of some thirty years of intensive research. He is well-qualified to chronicle the lives of these brave young men and women. His father, James, and cousins Paddy and Tommy Mahon, were members of the GPO garrison. A native Dubliner, he has spent his life researching the city’s history. Apart from oral sources and the reminiscences of people he knew from his childhood he has trawled the newspapers searching diligently for obituaries of the forgotten people. Many, but not all, signed the Roll of Honour in the 1930s. The Bureau of Military History was an invaluable source, although not everyone who was in the garrison came forward to record their roles. The recent release of the Service Pension Records has added new people to his list.
