Conference Theme: Mathematical Literacy, throughout and beyond education It is with great pleasure that we present the following proceedings from the Seventh Conference on Research in Mathematics Education in Ireland (MEI 7), which took place in Dublin City University in October, 2019. In these proceedings of MEI 7, we present papers that reflect a broad variety of mathematical research that is taking place in Ireland and further afield. Collectively, the authors seek to solidify and progress the research field of mathematics education, throughout and beyond Ireland. Lorraine Harbison and Aisling Twohill
