Tallaght Community School opened in 1972 as the first community school in Ireland. A radical and experimental concept at the time, the community school model has prospered and matured in the intervening years.
The school serves a major population centre (Tallaght pop. 90,000+) located about 10 miles southwest of Dublin city. TCS caters for boys and girls from 12 to 18 years from multi-cultural backgrounds.
