Death of Publisher Michael O'Brien

The Board and Staff of Literature Ireland are saddened to learn of the death of the publisher, Michael O'Brien. His legacy, most especially as a visionary children's publisher lives on in the hundreds of books he has commissioned and published, which have captured the imaginations of thousands of children and young adults both here in Ireland and in translation right across the globe from Mexico to Georgia.

Our condolences to his wife Svetlana, to his children and grandchildren, and to Ivan O'Brien and his many friends and colleagues at the O'Brien Press.
