    I want to look at the state of adult education in Ireland. I am suggesting that the state here means both the condition in which we now find adult education and the role of the Irish State in adult education. I will briefly outline • some recent developments in adult education; • make some critical comments on the state of adult education; • look at the links between the State and the economy and civil society that have important implications for adult education.
