“Writers stare at the sun, they seek out the dark, they try to encapsulate the biggest of ideas into the smallest of moments. They stay close to the matters of the heart that matter to us all”. – Sarah Moore Fitzgerald, The Ogham Stone 2018

Welcome to the Ogham Stone website, an online platform based on Limerick’s literary journal. We are a diverse range of students on the MA in English and MA in Creative Writing programmes at the University of Limerick. Our job is to continue to build the prestigious reputation of the Ogham Stone by creating an enjoyable Irish publication with a range of new bold exciting literary works submitted by a variety of writers in Ireland and afar.

Our website will give you a glimpse behind the scenes of the hard work and fun involved in the making of the Ogham Stone, while providing updates on upcoming literary events and sharing advice from our faculty including bestselling authors Joseph O’Connor, Donal Ryan and Sarah Moore Fitzgerald.

Submissions to our 2019 issue are now closed. Thank you to everyone who submitted work. The journal receives more submissions than can be published so we kindly ask writers to be patient and understanding in the process.
