Brief History

The Centre was initially located in the Model School in Anglesea Street. The first full-time Director was Bart Bambury (1973 – 2001).

Over the years the centre has moved premises a number of times.
Michael Jackson, Acting Director, (2001 -2002) oversaw a change of name which coincided with the move to the present location on Western Road in January 2002.
Cork Education Support Centre is a custom-built, state of the art facility incorporating the old Holy Trinity Rectory (previously occupied by the Music Department of UCC) along with a sizeable new development on the Mardyke Walk side of the site.
