Gill is a leading independent publisher and distributor based in Dublin, Ireland. Its publishing activities encompass a wide range of subjects and topics and its name is synonymous with books and publishing in Ireland.

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. In 2013, the Gill family bought out Macmillan.[1]
