New issue out now!

The new issue of Punt is on the shelves now! This month we ask: is Dublin a city of literature or a city of cheapskates? How did Australia get it right? Why does the Irish health system pay for sickness rather than wellbeing?

As well as that: interviews with Synth Eastwood, Areaman and the folk behind the Offset festival, along with live listings for the month ahead. And FREE STUFF with the new Punter Card. And all for €2.

On sale from independent retailers around Dublin


Here at Punt, we’re trying to revive that ancient Irish tradition of storytelling.

Every family has a good yarn — what’s yours? If there’s someone in your family with a story to tell, we want to hear it. Sit them down, get it on paper (max 400 words) and send it to puntmagazine@gmail.com. If you have a photo to go along with the story, even better. If not, we’ll get our photographers or illustrators on the case.

Punt is a new platform for narrative journalism in Ireland, providing critical but optimistic analysis, along with a healthy dose of the arts, photography and illustration, interviews and satire. This month, we examine the whole panoply of children’s rights and the need for a referendum to protect one of the most vulnerable groups in our society.

Punt is an ad-free zone by policy. The only ads you’ll find here will be non-commercial and from our Punters.

Throughout Punt, you’ll find plenty of art, photography, comics and the like – but we always need more, so get in touch if you’d like to contribute. And if you have feedback on our first issue, please email puntmagazine@gmail.com.
