The Dundalk Community Training Centre was first established in September 1985 and we were situated in the Old Boys Technical School, Dundalk. The centre then relocated to the Magnet
Cinema building after extensive renovations in April 2004. In 2016 the centre undertook a new modification programme, to improve and extend the facilities and programmes on offer.
The Centre has also been approved for City & Guilds Hairdressing Awards. The Dundalk CTC currently has 56 trainees participating in our training programmes.
2016 National Flag Ceremony – Croke Park – 7th March 2016
Our trainees were delighted with an opportunity to attend this ceremony on behalf of our centre and to participate in a national event to celebrate and remember 1916. We brought our flag back
to our centre and held our own ceremony. This ceremony was a fantastic opportunity for us to reflect on our own sense of history and national identity.
In preparation for our centre ceremony the trainees reflected on the proclamation and created a new proclamation for today’s world.
