The Great Reads Awards Shortlist Announced!

Now in its 9th year, the Great Reads Award is one of the very few awards where students themselves vote and choose the winning titles. We aim to promote a feeling of ownership over literature for students, encouraging them to engage critically with novels, and display their enthusiasm for reading. Vote now for your favourite read!

The Discover Irish Kids Books Campaign

Childrens books written by Irish authors are not featuring the the Irish bestseller lists and the Discover Irish Kids Books campaign aims to change that by raising awareness of homegrown authors and illustators.
