Celebrating 10 years of wishes at Childhood Development Initiative, Tallaght


Dublin South West TD and Independent Minister, Katherine Zappone, joins the continuing celebrations at Tallaght Library to mark 10-years of the Childhood Development Initiative (CDI) in the community.

The CDI has benefitted 12,000 adults and children in West Tallaght since it was established in 2007.

It has received €22 million in funding, half of which came from the Government through the Department of Children and Youth Affairs.

Minister Zappone, who is a founder and former chair, says the initiative remains “the best in the country and a model for others to follow.”
