Liberties Press and 2011 - Part I

A very practical start to the year with Aidan Kelly's Get Your Tax Back 2011!
In time for the General Election 2011, Noel Whelan's The Tallyman's Campaign Handbook - Election 2011 was a must-have guide to all things political! Launched in the National Library of Ireland, Dublin by John Bowman.


Our first literary fiction title of the year, The Boy In The Gap by debut fiction author Paul Soye! An absorbing and enthralling read, The Boy In The Gap received rave reviews with hopes 'that this writer's ink never stops flowing'. 
The Boy In The Gap was launched in The Linenhall Arts Centre, Castlebar with Prof. Adrian Frazier and later as part of The Dublin Book Festival 2011 with author Christine Dwyer-Hickey.
