The Dublin Horse Show ‘Pictures of my Memories’ by Noel Mullins

Noel Mullins’ new book, ‘The Dublin Horse Show’, with its 800 action packed images takes the reader on a pictorial journey through the famous show. It has taken more than 10 years for Mullins to take thousands of photos of the annual shop window of the Irish Horse, and to narrow them down to the best 800 in his new book. The Foreword is written by Matthew Dempsey who was President of the Royal Dublin Society (2014-17). He is also chairman of the Irish National Stud and the Agricultural Trust that features amongst its titles, The Irish Field and The Farmers Journal, the best known Irish publications for both comprehensive coverage of all disciplines of equestrianism and farming.

In Search of the Kerry Beagle by Stanislaus Lynch

‘In Search of the Kerry Beagle’ is a fascinating read by journalist, author and poet Stanislaus Lynch, the only Irish writer to be awarded two Olympic Diplomas for the Literature of the Chase at the London Games in1948, and Helsinki in 1952.

Written by Lynch nearly three quarters of a century ago, it has been sitting in his study since he passed away in 1983. During a meeting in 2005 between his wife Margaret and photojournalist and author Noel Mullins when he was writing a feature on her late husband, they discussed the possibility of it being published. Mullins at the time was busy writing other books and on a research fellowship at the National Sporting Library near Washington in the USA working on the manuscripts of other Irish writers. But he realised the significance of the work and its historical significance and that it should not be lost to the public. So he agreed to edit and publish it, and finally it is now available to the readers.

Edited and published by Noel Mullins. For further information and to order a copy please go to www.noelmullins.com
