Welcome to the website of the Geographical Society of Ireland
The Geographical Society of Ireland was founded in 1934 to promote the status and study of geography, drawing on both professionals and members of the public for its membership. The affairs of the Geographical Society of Ireland are managed by an elected committee. One of its early aims was the publication of a journal that would have a strong focus on the geography of Ireland.
Irish Geography, published since 1944, is the premier peer-reviewed journal devoted to the geography of Ireland. It has an international distribution and is read on six continents. Its reputation for quality is long established and standards are maintained by an internationally based editorial advisory board.
For most of its life, Irish Geography was a print journal but since 1998 there has been an electronic presence for the journal, and copies of issues from then are available on this site. Since January 2008, Irish Geography has been published by Taylor and Francis, marking the growing international recognition of the Society’s flagship publication.
