About Us

Prompted by the need they had identified to give a voice to writers from the North West of Ireland, Prin and Betty Duignan founded Drumlin Publications in 1989.

They aimed to meet the growing demand from both writers and the public, for books about and from their own areas, which was not being served by the established publishing houses. Immediately on starting, the company took full advantage of the opportunity to 'desktop publish' afforded by the advent of personal computers.

The business has proven a great success ever since with much well received work having been published over the years. There has also been no shortage of aspiring authors with many more book drafts regularly submitted than it is ever possible to accept for publication.

From its beginnings the company has specialised primarily in the publishing of works dealing with aspects of the local history of Leitrim and the surrounding counties. These include parish histories (e.g. Dromahaire - Story and Pictures) and a special series focusing solely on the social history of North Leitrim.

Several biographies, family histories (e.g. McDermott of Moylurg) and books in the Irish language have also been produced. Since the issuing of the firm's 1st book, O'Rourke of Breffni (now out of print), some 30 different titles have been published.

All have been edited by Prin, a former teacher and a writer himself, who acknowledges that the historical appreciation he acquired through taking an MA in History has greatly aided in this work over the years.

Drumlin Publications have also been responsible for the typesetting, design and layout of several books published by other sources.
