dc.description.abstract    Ireland is a country with a small and emergent design research community. Relative to other countries, the practice of design itself in Ireland is a recent development with the first formal design courses materialising in the mid-1970s. Without historical legacy and sustained coordinated support from design specific state development agencies, the progress of this nascent Irish design sector has been fragmented and unfocused. Irish Design 2015 (ID2015) a yearlong government backed initiative sought to address this lack of coherence in tandem with increasing the visibility and profile of Irish design. This article reflects on the historical context Irish design research and practice sits within and explores the early success of the ITERATIONS Design Research and Practice review as one of a series of initiatives launched as part of ID2015. It makes the case for robust dialogue and advocacy in addressing the needs of an emergent community of practice  en_US
