Publishing Ireland


Publishing Ireland was founded in 1970 as CLÉ – Irish Book Publishers’ Association  in response to the need felt by publishers to share expertise and resources in order to benefit from opportunities and solve problems which were of common concern to all.

Membership of Publishing Ireland has grown significantly and comprises most of the major publishing houses in Ireland with a mixture of trade, general and academic publishers as members.

Publishing Ireland is a cross-border organisation, with a Board drawn from the member companies’ staff and various committees and working groups. Publishing Ireland is run on the principles of inclusion and accountability, responding to and anticipating members’ needs.
