• It has come to our attention that some users may have been "banned" when they tried to change their passwords after the site was hacked due to a glitch in the old vBulletin software. This would have occurred around the end of February and does not apply after the site was converted to Xenforo.

The revamped Dublin Review of Books

The website has been updated on a quarterly basis for a number of years, providing articles (mostly reviews, as the name suggests), on matters political, literary and cultural. Now, however, the DRB team have moved into the social networking era, putting more regular material online, and varying the format by incorporating blogs and essays. Plenty to keep the p.ie team happy - Electoral College 101, why the decline of Irish language predates the Famine, along with pieces on Vidal and Austen, among others. The layout looks rather busy now, but the owners admit it's a work in progress.
