Village is an Irish current affairs magazine founded by Vincent Browne. It was launched in October 2004 and was published weekly.[1] Its initial directors included Barbara Nugent, Terry McManus, Michael Smith along with Browne.[2]

On 27 November 2008, it was relaunched under a new editor Michael Smith,[3] a former investor in the magazine,[4] and published by Ormond Quay Publishing Limited.[5] It is currently published on a monthly basis with a stringent leftist editorial filter. The only right-wing commentator writing for the magazine is well-known economist Constantin Gurdgiev who writes the 'Interloper' column. Village's editorial board comprises Michael Smith, Niall Crowley, Bride Rosney and Joan Fitzpatrick. Former Green Party leader John Gormley is a contributing editor.

Journalists who have contributed to the magazine include the former Irish Times Columnist John Waters, Conor Brady (now Garda Ombudsman), health journalist Sara Burke(who served as Managing Editor), Frank Connolly and briefly Justine McCarthy(now with the Irish Independent).
