Good chance they didn't bloom because they were mowed down last year.  
Another possible cause could be overcrowding, since they were established beds. This 
can also lead to nutrients being depleted from the soil.  Irises should be 
dug and replanted every 3 to 5 years.  Either replenish nutrients in the soil 
and replace or move to a new spot that hasn't grown irises.  Too much shade 
could also inhibit bloom. They require 5 to 6 hours of sun per day.

Welcome to the list and lots of luck.
