Love Notes From A German Building Site by Adrian DuncanApril 2019

This profound and moving story follows the experience of Paul, an Irish engineer in Berlin involved in the renovation of a commercial building in Alexanderplatz. The book is at once a treatise on language, memory, building and desire. Adrian Duncan has been tipped by the Irish Times as one to watch for 2019.



The Scar by Mary Cregan • April 2019

In this fearlessly honest and riveting memoir, Mary Cregan links her experience of bereavement and depression with a medical and cultural history of mental illness.

‘The book will be passed from person to person, within families, from doctor to doctor. It will really help people … What makes the book stand out is the sheer clarity of the writing, the personal fragility and the wrestling with demons emerging here with a kind of grace, a hardwon heroism.’ Colm Toibín


Introducing Moriarty edited by Michael W. Higgins • April 2019

In Introducing Moriarty Canadian theologian and academic Michael W. Higgins compiles the essential writings of Irish philosopher and mystic, John Moriarty. This distillation of Moriarty’s texts on ecology, mysticism and spirituality is a perfect introduction to the work of this complex and at times esoteric thinker. An essential addition to the library of anyone interested in Irish philosophy and spirituality.

Floating Structures (Film) • Monday 25 February at 6.30pm • Irish Film Institute

Feargal Ward and Adrian Duncan’s film follows a researcher travelling across Europe, exploring an array of buildings and structures that seem other-worldly. Drawing on the ideas and visions of the great Irish engineer Peter Rice, they explore the hinterlands that gave rise to these structures. Wandering from a quiet Bavarian town, to the streets of Paris, to the city of Seville, our past is sifted through and interlinked with precision and wonder.
