Marian Finucane Fund, for Women’s Education

We are so delighted with the announcement of the Marian Finucane Bursary Fund, which will support women to access education. Marian was a trailblazer and champion for women, and this will empower our learners to follow her inspiration.

Following the Covid restrictions, we want to reassure all our community that our Adult Education (Community, Further & Higher Education) programmes will continue online and that our Early Years Education & Care Centres remain open.
Our Family Support, Student Support, Community Support and Counselling Services are still running, though have been adapted to be delivered safely in person or via phone/online.
We are here for you during this difficult time, and if you need support we want you to reach out to us, which you can do by e-mail to or by phone at 01 462 8488
