"We did our Community Action in Don Bosco Care on Clontarf Road. We were told about this centre by our TY coordinator, because we found it really hard to find a community placement as many places were full. We had a great time in Don Bosco Care, all the people who work  there were really friendly and helpful which made working there so much better."
