This conference paper outlines the research on drugs carried out in Ireland since the first clinical evidence for amphetamine dependence was established in 1966 and charts the changes as the opiate epidemic began in the 1980s. The areas covered by researchers in Ireland are documented such as epidemiology, criminology, sociology, treatment and policy evaluation. Recommendations are made for researchers, such as a move away from supply reduction to demand reduction and more analytical reports rather than descriptive, particularly at a national level. The paper also outlines the need for researchers in Ireland such as the national documentation centres as proposed by the EMCDDA.
