Now is the Time: Spiritual Reflections

by Sister Stan

Now is the Time became an instant bestseller when it was first published, and it has continued to sell to an increasing and eager audience who admire and understand Stan's way. In this expanded edition, which includes five new entries, Stan's message remains the same: we have the time, if we make the choice to take time ...

Now is the Time is a book for everyone; young or old, male or female, for the converted or those who are irreligious or plain disaffected. Even people for whom a spiritual view of the world is a closed book should try opening this one.

Now is the Time looks beyond the boundaries of any one faith or church and draws on the great spiritual and philosophical traditions of east and west. As Sister Stan focuses on a line of poetry from one of the world's great authors, an idea from a psychotherapist or philosopher, or a proverb from oriental wisdom, she weaves her own thoughts around them in a way that presents them afresh, and allows us to see them from a new perspective.

Widely loved as a committed social activist and tireless worker on behalf of people in need, Sister Stan reveals an entirely different side of her nature - the reflective, contemplative and the spiritual - and offers us an inspiring and thought-provoking work of vision.

Once Upon a Time in the West: The Corrib Gas Controversy

by Lorna Siggins

'All I want is to stay where I am . . . My heart and soul are in this place.'
(Willie Corduff, one of The Rossport Five)

In a remote, beautiful part of the west of Ireland, a David and Goliath struggle rages between multinational oil company, Shell, and some of the local community of Rossport, County Mayo.

In 1996, Enterprise Oil, subsequently bought by Shell, found a major source of valuable gas offshore in the Corrib gas field. In the attempt to build an onshore pipeline and refinery the oil giant has come into conflict with a small group of locals who, anxious about the safety of their families, the environmental impact of the project and the future of their community, are resisting Shell's plans. The eyes of the nation fell on this tiny community when, in 2005, five of the residents were jailed for refusing to allow Shell onto their land, in contempt of court orders. These men have become known as The Rossport Five.

Irish Times correspondent Lorna Siggins has been covering the controversy from the beginning. No one is better placed to unravel the twists and turns of this fascinating human drama and its political, cultural and environmental shockwaves.

In a new Ireland where economic logic goes largely unchallenged, the Corrib Gas pipeline controversy raises uncomfortable questions about the ways in which Ireland has changed.

One Chance

by Emily Gillmor Murphy

What if your dream was against all odds?

Liz O’Brien doesn’t want to fall in love. All she has ever wanted is to be a professional show-jumper and now it’s within her grasp. She’ll do anything to succeed . . . even if that means keeping secrets from those around her.

Matt has no intention of falling in love, either. He has never known a thrill like show-jumping. Intense, exhilarating and fast-paced – for Matt, nothing beats the rush that comes with a win.

But then Matt and Liz are thrown together as rivals, and as desire begins to take over, tension grows between them. Both must fight against all odds for their dreams – and for each other.

Paul Galvin: The Autobiography

by Paul Galvin

Paul Galvin has been one of the greatest GAA footballers of the modern era. Over the course of a brilliant but occasionally controversial career, he won four senior All Ireland medals with Kerry and six Munster championships, was a three-time All Star and won ‘Footballer of the Year’ in 2010. His inter-county career began in the late 1990s, winning gold in the Munster minor championship in 1997, and at under-21 level in 1999. But it was in the senior team throughout the 2000s that he came into his own as a key playmaker for Kerry in a period defined by their great rivalry with Tyrone.

In a career marked by courage, physicality and an intense passion for the ‘green and gold’, there were many glorious days. But there were other days too marred by controversial incidents which led to a number of crucial suspensions from the game, most notably in 2009 when Paul had the honour of being the Kerry captain – a boyhood dream. 2010 brought redemption. 2011, however, brought its own controversies.

In this fiercely honest autobiography, Paul writes about the good days and the bad, the highs and the lows, and gives us an unflinching and compelling account of a career that has fascinated football fans for over a decade.
