Bibliographic information


“Cyber Ireland is an impressive achievement. Lynch avoids the simplistic digital vs. print dichotomy and instead demonstrates the intertextual possibilities of a range of texts and a variety of media. Engagingly written, with a welcome dose of humour, this is an important contribution to digital cultural studies, both in Ireland and elsewhere.” (Nicola Presley, Irish Studies Review, June, 2018)
