Ireland of the Welcomes was first published in May 1952 and in the May / June issue we plan on celebrating this happy occasion with a one-off special collector's edition compiled from our 70 years of archived magazines.

In this issue, our writers go in search of adventure this New Year. Domhnall O'Donoghue explores all that Belfast has to offer and shares a personal treasure that is Cabra Castle, in Cavan.

Deanna O'Connor speaks to Declan O'Rourke about his new book The Pawnbroker's Reward, based on the lives of real people during Ireland's Great Hunger.

Of course, St. Valentine's Day is also on the horizon and romance is in the air. Leon O’Cathasaigh examines the great Irish love stories while elsewhere we explore the saint's links to Dublin.
