Dalkey School Project
The Dalkey School Project is a school in Glenageary, County Dublin in Ireland. It was set up on September 18, 1978 by parents in Dublin who wanted their children to attend a Multidenominational school.
Support for such a school came from Jack Lynch, then head of Fianna Fáil, the Labour Party and some members of Fine Gael. However the then-minister for education, Richard Burke was not sympathetic.
The school opened in 1978 with 90 pupils, largely due to the support of the then newly elected Fianna Fáil government. Opposition came from a group calling itself Council for Social Concern and some but some also came from obstructing of planning permission according to Michael Johnston, who was chairman of the project. The school operated from various temporary premises until a dedicated school building was opened in 1983.
