About TACT

TACT, Tallaght Adult Community Training, is a morning education group running for the
past 30 years, currently based in St Dominic’s National School.

TACT was established in 1981, formed by Fred Gulding and a group of local women. Fred
was an Adult Education Office with the VEC for Tallaght and was tasked with providing
adult education in the community. Number one priority was that the facility need to include
a creche, as there was a lot of young families in the area. At this time Tallaght was growing
with the addition of new housing estates being build.

TACT’s aim was to provide accessible, affordable adult education with excellent creche
facilities all in the one building, providing a real sense of community in a fun, friendly

Today TACT still provides these excellent facilities, along with a great coffee room with free
WiFi, variety of excellent broad range of classes and creche at only €5.

We run 25 classes a week, for 25 weeks of the year, to all ages and walks of life ,
everything from Tai Chi, Pilates, Yoga, Art Appreciation (run in conjunction with the
National Gallery of Ireland), Art for Beginners and Improvers, Ceramics, Dancing also for
