  • We are excited to invite you to the launch of our latest issue of Turf & Grain - Issue Four: Women. The event will take place in the Shared Threads studio in Portview Trade Centre - studio A1.03. - from 6.30pm - 8.30pm on Friday 14th December and we would love to see you there! There will be some words from Kirsty King, the coordinator of @shared__threads and a poetry reading by @earlierthanthis . Refreshments from @weareohdonuts & @boundarybrewing will be provided. To give back in a small way, £2 from each issue sold at the launch will go to the brilliant work of Shared Threads. We hope to see you there and can’t wait for you to see Issue Four

  • Meet Ruth Connolly, another fantastic addition to the team for Issue Four: Women. Based in Dublin, Ruth is a fine art and commercial photographer who lectures at the Dublin Institute of Design. Ruth is a wonderful photographer - her portraits really capture moments and bring out the life and energy of her subjects. She displayed this beautifully in her shoots for the issue, working with @katiejsanderson and the Reverends Cheryl Meban and Heather Morris. On top of these skills, Ruth is considerate and easy going and we really appreciated her excitement to be part of this issue’s process. You can view her work in Issue Four, and at @ruth.connolly here on instagram. Thanks so much Ruth!!

  • Yesterday was a mixed day. We got news from our printer that unfortunately the magazine won’t be ready for next Friday’s launch. It’s one of those things, but it’s frustrating that this is the second launch event I’ve had to rearrange - despite wanting to deliver a “slow” magazine I often seem to want to rush this part of the process. I’m still learning and despite the inconvenience I really appreciate how understanding everyone is being. We will hold a launch slightly later in December and its delay doesn’t take away from the fantastic work the team has done on this beautiful issue. I’m really proud of the work we have done over the last two years, which resulted in us winning the award for “Best Irish Printed Magazine” last night. But there are many more stories to tell, thanks for all your support in helping us tell them the way we do! See you all very soon, Simon

  • Team Turf - As we close in on the launch of Issue Four: Women, we would like to introduce the people behind the issue and say a big thanks to them! To start, meet Kellyn Bowler. Kellyn joined the Turf & Grain team for this issue, coming on board to shoot @emmalangfordmusic and @wednesdayerskin as well as helping Simon develop the branding and design of Turf & Grain. Working with Kellyn has been such a pleasure, she brings such great experience and skill to the team along with an amazing designer’s eye. You can check out her amazing work in Issue Four in a few short weeks, but if you can’t wait that long head over to @kellyn_design or @kellyn_photos! Thanks Kellyn!

  • We had the opportunity to sit down with Jane Larmour, architect, lecturer and director of Belfast and Dublin based @alwarchitects for Issue Four. We discussed her path into architecture, creating a work-life balance and her thoughts on women in architecture in Ireland. Read the article in Issue Four: Women, launching in December.

  • “It all started one Tuesday afternoon in my grandad’s backroom ten years ago. Having gotten my hands on an old family photo album, we were going through it, page by page, identifying who was who in the old sepia pictures. There were so many – my great-grandfather down the fields, my own mother as a tiny child, even my grandad and his siblings, all toothy grins, mucking about. I peppered him with questions and got so engrossed, that it took a while to realise that there was one question I should have been asking – who was behind the lens?” Utilising photos from her own family album, Belfast Exposed’s collection, and from Irish photojournalist Kim Haughton, Greer McNally explores the role of Irish women in forging their identity through pictures, past and present for Issue: 4 Women.

  • “And while there is always something you’re playing over in your mind that you’re failing miserably at, you longingly look at your child as they sleep, overpowered with adoration—no amount of self-doubt could displace your absolute certainty that this human is perfection itself, and somewhere you know that you play a role in that, if only for a fleeting moment.” Connie Hunter-Jamison writes openly and honestly on motherhood, loss, and life for our upcoming Issue: Women, coming in December.
