Oxygenation is the Solution.

This book will be of interest to the public, patients, policy makers and legal and medical practitioners and will stimulate debate. Without doubt, independent systematic reviews of  hyperbaric oxygen therapy are needed as are measured consideration by policy makers. The author is to be congratulated for tackling such contentious issues in his forthright style and for his advocacy. All such matters have been sharpened by the Covid-19 pandemic and the book describes some experience of  such advocacy during the pandemic. Such matters are topical and controversial.’

Baby Dara And The Sahara

by Barry Loftus


In a world where every story is a journey, “Baby Dara and the Sahara” takes us on a unique expedition that explores the intricate tapestry of family dynamics, the resilience of the human spirit in the face of infant illness, and the triumph of the human will through a gruelling desert race.

Barry Loftus, in his debut novel, unveils a narrative that is not only captivating but also deeply poignant. The themes woven into this tale reflect the author’s understanding of the complexities of familial bonds. As readers delve into the pages of this book, they will find themselves entangled in a web of emotions, navigating the highs and lows of life, love, and the unbreakable ties that bind us.



We’re really proud to say, The Book Hub Publishing Group continues to champion new authors, poets, illustrators and designers and we’ve published 75+ books.

2020, with the global pandemic seemed a good time to institute some change in direction in the life of the Book Hub Publishing Group, which has been busy publishing authors since 2009.
Very grateful to Niall, John and the crew for their work over the years, we really wanted to get a stronger sense of the company being led by women and promote the idea of female entrepreneurship in Ireland so we had a team meeting (Zoom as we were all in various states of lockdown) and agreed we needed a formal role of Head of Diversity, Inclusion and Equality–Dr. Mary Helen Hensley was perfect for the role with her life experiences and publication interests. We aim to review inclusion across the board in our projects. Our Northern Ireland Senior Script Reviewer, Anna Gray, was happy to maintain and build on her existing role and also move into ghostwriting. Dr. Phil Noone from Ocean Mindfulness, assumed Senior Irish Reviewer role and Susan McKenna took over as Director, Commissioning Editor and Author Rep. Anne Hayden MSc took up the role of Head of Sustainability in 2023. We borrow in senior editors from our sister company when required!
Since 2020, we’ve continued to grow and work with existing and new authors from as far afield as the UK, the United States, France, Canada, Switzerland and even Peru and, of course, we continue to work with Irish authors here in Ireland. We’ve also published several volumes of poetry and have more book projects from several genres in the pipeline.
Being women in business is challenging, but also deeply rewarding. We hope to continue to pave the way for diversity and inclusion in publishing and are committed to sparking creative talent.
