The April issue of Irish Country Magazine

Here’s a sneak peek at what’s inside this month!

The shiny new issue of Irish Country Magazine is out now and we’re thrilled to have author Louise O’Neill on the cover. We brought a team down to beautiful west Cork for the shoot and we sat down with her to talk about what it’s like writing two books in a year. We’re also sharing bright ideas for your wardrobe this spring with the best in accessories and colourful shades, and, as always, there’s tonnes of inspiration in beauty, food, travel, interiors and more.

Here’s five reasons to check out the new issue:

1 Louise O’Neill

See the dreamy west Cork shoot and read the author’s thoughts on the rural-Dublin divide and why she’s loving living in her home town. Watch the behind the scenes video here.

2 Bright ideas

3 Changing the narrative

Maria Moynihan meets the “returners” – the women returning to work after long breaks to raise a family, we ask if self-help books have had their day, and we check out an inclusive new kids’ campaign.

4 Taste of home

Klara Heron meets the woman behind Jane Russell’s Handmade Sausages and we’re sharing mouth-watering recipes from Eunice Power.

5 Great getaways

A weekend break in Ballymaloe House, fabulous Irish staycations, plus a chance to win a relaxing break in Galway’s Galmont Hotel.

There’s all that and more in the April issue of Irish Country Magazine, out now.
