Citywise Education

Citywise is a not-for-profit organisation which was set up to run education, sporting and personal development programmes. It began in 1991 in Dublin as a response to educational under-achievement of young people living in difficult city backgrounds and was formally established in 1994. Over the years Citywise has run programmes in Limerick, Belfast, Ballymun and in Westmeath. From these beginnings sprang Citywise Education in Tallaght in 2004, following on the construction of a new purpose built premises, The Durkan Centre, with a view to serving the needs of young people in West Tallaght.
