History[edit]

In 1856, Michael Henry Gill, printer for Dublin University, purchased the publishing and bookselling business of James McGlashan, and the company was renamed McGlashan & Gill. In 1875, it was renamed M.H. Gill & Son. In 1968, the company became associated with the London based Macmillan Publishers (founded 1843) and Gill & Macmillan was established.

Products[edit]

Gill & Macmillan mainly publishes educational books for school and college students. They also publish a range of general interest non-fiction titles including the annual best-seller Money Doctor finance guides.

As well as handling its own published titles, Gill & Macmillan also handles the warehousing and distribution for a number of Irish-based publishers, including O'Brien Press.

Gill & Macmillan also runs eTest.ie, an online learning resource aimed at Irish second-level students. They also have a series of online tests designed to accompany many of their educational books, covering a growing list of secondary school subjects.
