Cinemas of Ireland is a collection of fourteen essays which provide numerous approaches to the new Irish cinemascape from both an Irish and a European perspective. Highlighting the works of European scholars in Irish studies, it features a variety of noteworthy critical papers that explore the evolution of contemporary Irish cinema in an era of globalisation. The collection also stresses the rich interdisciplinary nature of Irish film studies, ranging from theoretical studies, gender studies, to political and historical studies. The list of films analysed includes among others Adam and Paul (2004), The Wind that Shakes the Barley (2006), Garage (2007), The Brave One (2007).

This collective volume is aimed at all established and emerging scholars who work on Irish cinema and at all the readers who are interested in discovering contemporary Irish cinema in its evolution and in the issues it tackles.
