DUBLIN-- They are best known on this side of the water as the Fighting Irish, but 40 students from Notre Dame showed a kinder side this week.

The University students from the United States, working over the weekend in partnership with Localise, the youth and community development organisation, have created a new youth centre for 10-15 year-olds in the south inner city of Dublin.

The centre is located at the Sophia Housing unit on 25 Cork Street, Dublin 8. The Notre Dame students obtained materials and supplies for the project from their alumni while designers Emily Westbrooks and Alex Carberry volunteered their time and expertise to the project.
