Upcoming events at CDCFE

We are coming towards the end of the academic year, which means it is time for the students of Coláiste Dhúlaigh College of Further Education to showcase the culmination of their course work and projects.

We will host a series of events which are open to the public and we are particularly looking forward to welcoming prospective students and their family and friends to sample what CDCFE has to offer.

In the last of week of April, our media department students will participate in “Radio Week”. They will broadcast live on our college radio station “CDCFE radio”. This student radio station is currently streaming online. Search it, or simply ask Alexa to “enable CDCFE Radio”. The project will involve students from the media production, journalism and social media content creation courses and will allow them the opportunity to produce and broadcast shows about the issues that matter most to them. Listen in and make requests to us on Watsapp 0892137170.

On the 25th April the Photography and the Graphic Design QQI Level 6 students will showcase their work in the “Photographics 2023” exhibition, which will take place in the Coolock campus canteen from 4pm-7pm. All are welcome to attend this event which highlights the best work from these creative students. The virtual exhibition is already live online and can be viewed here:

The 25th April will see students from our pre-university nursing, occupational therapy assistant, healthcare and physiotherapy assistant, pre university sports science, sport rehabilitation & exercise therapy and speech and language therapy assistant courses participating in a day of raising awareness about health and well-being. Come along and take part in some of their activities between 10am – 2pm.

On the 11th May, students throughout the college will showcase their work in a “Farewell Festival” in the Raheny campus on Springdale Road. This fun day will give students from courses such as art & design, entrepreneurship, fashion design, craft production and many more, an opportunity to show and sell their handmade products. Refreshments will be provided at this outdoor event and all are welcome to attend from 1pm to 4pm.

Our final event of the year takes place in The Lighthouse Cinema in Smithfield where students of our film production HND, media production HND, Animation HND and the Film Production BA & Animation BA which are accredited by University of Wolverhampton, will have a screening of their short films. Many of these shorts will be entered into international festivals. If you would like to attend this event please email coolock@cdcfe.cdetb.ie to book your place.

Our students have worked hard all year on these projects and are excited to showcase their high-quality work.
