    Abstract

    In this paper, I will cover three main questions, starting with a discussion about what the ‘knowledge society’ means and examining some of the contested interpretations of this term. In the second part of the paper I will consider what the ‘knowledge society’ might mean for the island of Ireland and thirdly, I will address some of the implications of this in terms of policy and vision, knowledge retrieval and knowledge construction.
