The Institute of Designers has produced a great little booklet Why Design. It gives you a short description of different types of design, from graphics to textile. It also gives a list of what courses are available in Ireland, with all the college contact details.
"The Institute of Designers in Ireland is the professional body representing the interests of Irish designers. Its function is to promote high standards of design, to foster professionalism and to emphasise designers' responsibility to society, to the client and to each other."
