In 1856, Michael Henry Gill, printer for Dublin University, purchased the publishing and bookselling business of James McGlashan, and the company was re-named McGlashan & Gill. In 1875, it was re-named 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.
Gill publishes educational books for school and college students under Gill Education. They also publish general interest non-fiction titles under Gill Books. As well as handling its own published titles, Gill also handles the warehousing and distribution for a number of Irish-based publishers, including O'Brien Press and the Irish Manuscripts Commission under Gill Distribution. Gill also runs My-eTest.com, an online learning resource aimed at Irish second-level students. They also have a series of online tests designed to accompany 22 of their educational books, covering 8 secondary school subjects.
