From top: designer hub Creative Ireland and the government’s new Creative Ireland arts initiative

As you may be aware Enda launched his sudden new interest in the Arts ‘Creative Ireland‘ last Thursday to much fanfare – a ‘brand new’ initiative to support the Arts in everything from coding to… food, indeed pretty much everything it seems, including tin whistles for all no doubt. What’s not to love?
Unfortunately, Creative Ireland has already existed since 1999 as a website for the design community with free directory, free jobdesk and community forum with 5,000 members.
Even a cursory check of Google would have found us. Perhaps it doesn’t bode well for this ‘creative’ initiative that it couldn’t even be bothered to come up with its own name?
