About Us

Award winning publisher

Doire Press was founded in 2007 in Connemara by Lisa Frank and John Walsh. Lisa had experience in both editing and publishing while John had recently received a publication award from Galway County Council. Since then, they have found their niche in publishing new and emerging writers and have published debut collections from some of Ireland’s most noteworthy writers.


Poetry to Fiction

Our writers give voice to what it means to be Irish in a changing Ireland. Many of our authors published their debut works with us and have continued to grow their collections.
