Books from our collection

To celebrate this great Irish author's achievement, throughout the month of February we are highlighting numerous books and multimedia from our collection by or about Tóibín. All of these items can be browsed and borrowed from the book display on Level 1 of the James Joyce Library.

More books will be added to this list in the coming days. Be sure to see the display in the James Joyce Library!

Many congratulations to author Colm Tóibín, the new Laureate for Irish Fiction 2022-2024. This honour is an initiative of the Arts Council. The role seeks to acknowledge the contribution of fiction writers to Irish artistic and cultural life by:

  • honouring an established Irish writer of fiction
  • encouraging a new generation of writers
  • promoting Irish literature nationally and internationally
  • encouraging the public to engage with high quality Irish fiction.
