To mark the Year of Irish Design, RTE's new four-part series Designing Ireland seeks to celebrate all that is Irish design, from its early origins to how its been interpreted by current artists today.

Award-winning architect Angela Brady and respected design writer Dr Sandra O’Connell are your hosts as they travel around Ireland and in the first episode look at the country's most accomplished craft makers as well as Irish designers who have found a global audience, like Orla Kiely.
