We recently reached the milestone of 30 years leading breakthrough product innovation. Since Dolmen was founded in 1991, we've had the enormous privilege of working on the most incredible projects. We're delighted that so many of our valued clients, partners and friends were able to join us in-studio to the launch of our 30-year celebratory showcase (and we're particularly grateful to them for complying with our covid protocol throughout the event!)

We kicked off our celebration with some amazing guest speakers sharing their perspectives on the trials, tribulations and impact of breakthrough product innovation and its increasing importance within our fast changing world.

We heard some fascinating insights from industry leaders such as Leo Clancy (CEO Enterprise Ireland), the Guinness Global Brand Team (represented by Siobhan Hamilton, Commercial Director, and Steve Gilsenan, Global Head of Quality), renowned global MedTech entrepreneur John O'Dea (CEO, Palliare) and Geraldine Larkin (CEO at NSAI).

We also took the opportunity to celebrate the pioneering contribution of Sean Mc Nulty, our Chairman and Founder, who retires from Dolmen having fulfilled his mission to bring design and innovation to the forefront of product development and business transformation in Ireland. He leaves a strong fingerprint on the future DNA of Dolmen and a lasting purpose driven legacy for the team to continue (no doubt with the occasional and most welcome cameos as he retains a position as our valued founder and mentor). 


Guests were then welcomed into the showcase exhibition space where there was the opportunity to peruse some of our most memorable projects and be introduced to a number of our most recent innovation collaborations with the teams at Diageo, Palliare, MERLYN, WellAir and Randox. It was fantastic for our team to be able to share the highlights and stories of these projects with a broad range of clients and potentially catalyse some cross-industry innovation at the same time!

The key exhibitions of our 30 year showcase will be in place over the next 12 months and we look forward to welcoming as many of our clients and partners to view the exhibition in 2022, once restrictions allow. If you are interested in visiting the studio to see the exhibition or to consider how we can help you with breakthrough product innovation, please contact our Head of Business Development, Ian McDevitt at
