WELCOME to the home of the Dedalus Press, one of Ireland’s most forward-looking and energetic literary publishers, since 1985 publishing new poetry from Ireland and the world.

Despite the Covid-19 emergency, we’re still hard at work, not only expecting to complete our planned programme for 2020, but engaging more than ever with our audience online. Our local Post Office is still happy to see us with book packages and parcels, and are routinely delivering within two days all over Ireland.

On our Facebook page, we’re regularly posting excerpts and readings from new and backlist titles, and encouraging the exchange of new poems and opinion through our occasional competitions and open submission calls.

At this troubling time for so many, we’re putting our faith in the most intimate of art forms.  As we say around here, now more than ever Poetry Matters: Spread the Word.
