Poetry Ireland Review is the Irish poetry journal of record and the cornerstone of Poetry Ireland. PIR is released quarterly and publishes the work of both emerging and established Irish and international poets.

In line with our policy of keeping the journal fresh, vibrant and progressive, Poetry Ireland’s usual practice is to appoint a new editor after every four - eight issues. The current Editor is John F Deane.
