Cork Migrant Centre
Nano Nagle Place, Evergreen Street, T12 XPX8
The Cork Migrant Centre helps migrant children and families and their communities. Migrants are people who have come to our country and city from abroad, looking for a better life.
The Centre helps migrants in many ways to find their way in a new country. It provides information and advice for all areas of their lives. It gives them access to learning and education. It encourages them to gain confidence and help themselves.
Set up in 2006 by the Presentation Sisters, the Centre is based at Nano Nagle Place in Cork City. You can find out more about the Sisters and Nano Nagle Place in another part of our map.
Two inspiring women now lead the Centre, Naomi Masheti who is Programme Co-ordinator and Fionnuala O’Connell who is Youth Project Worker. Naomi features on our map alongside Nano Nagle. Some of the youth projects at the Centre include hip-hop, dance, drama and art workshops, homework clubs and summer camps. There is also a Girls in STEM programme engaging female students with Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.
