We are an Irish-based website publishing passionate and accessible work of a high standard, mainly by Irish or Irish-based writers addressing contemporary issues of general relevance.

We are always looking for non-fiction submissions from new writers. Poetry and Fiction are by Commission only. Please see below for further guidelines.

Dave Lordan is our founder and facilitating editor, and our editorial assembly includes Karl Parkinson, Tina Pisco, Emma Penney, Dylan Brennan, Peadar O Grady, Ciaran O Ceallaigh, Stephen Murray, and William Wall

We think creative community and independent initiative alongside absolute and unconditional artistic freedom is the way forward for the arts in Ireland and elsewhere. The Bogman’s Cannon is one of our contributions.

This week’s featured articles are:
