    Abstract

    The autumn 2008 publication Towards Standards for Quality Community Work, (Towards Standards Ad Hoc Group, 2008) aims to assemble in one place definitions and statements of the values and principles underpinning Irish community work. In this short article, using the standards and their development as a starting point, we focus on some of the features of the Irish community work tradition developed over the past three decades and of which the standards are themselves a reflection. Through the discussion we interweave suggestions on future issues and challenges.
