Transworld Launches Ireland Division

Transworld, a subsidiary of Random House UK, announced today that it is setting up a new subsidiary company, Transworld Ireland, which will publish its first list in 2008. Eoin McHugh, currently Head of Book Purchasing at Eason & Son Ltd, has been appointed Publisher. McHugh will report to Transworld’s Senior Publishing Director, Francesca Liversidge, and will join the company in September. “We have enjoyed great success in Ireland and I’m thrilled to be making this commitment to major growth for Transworld in what is an exciting and vibrant market,” said Transworld m.d. Larry Finlay. “The time is right to develop our Irish publishing programme, particularly in non-fiction and the best way to do this is to establish an editorial presence in Ireland.”

“I’ve been very fortunate over the last number of years to have worked with a wonderfully professional team at Eason,” added McHugh. “The exciting opportunity, however, of joining Transworld Ireland in this new and challenging venture has been impossible to resist. I am delighted to have been offered this position and look forward to working with former and future colleagues in seeking to make it a great success.”
