The Irish Review is a refereed journal. Since it first appeared in 1986 it has provided a forum critical and creative writing in English and Irish and a space in which new debates, ideas and voices are heard across Ireland and beyond. Its editorial policy is pluralist and interdisciplinary – pluralist in its commitment to involving writers from all parts of the island and from other countries, interdisciplinary in its desire to publish articles, poetry and writing on the arts, society, philosophy, history, politics, the environment and science. The aim is to serve a general rather than a specialist readership. The Irish Review aims to promote new ways of thinking about Irish arts and culture and new ways of understanding Ireland’s history and future.

Alison Garden and Margaret M. Scull
