Bad tidings; it is the end of the World of Hibernia

THE decimation of the Irish magazine world continues apace. Publishing genius Kevin Kelly and his son Mark seem to be genuinely grieving for the loss of World of Hibernia (WOH), their high-end American glossy about all things Irish that folded last month.

Kelly poured what he will only say is "a substantial sum" into the magazine over six years or so, but it simply never took off according to his son. In fact, the Kellys's losses were into the millions, but a combination of foot-and-mouth, the American recession and, eventually, September 11 finally killed it off for good.
