The John Sullivan Resource Centre
Clane, Co. Kildare

The John Sullivan Centre

The John Sullivan Day Centre has been established since 1990, when pre-fabricated buildings were purchased and set on site.

Since then a new centre was built. It was opened in May 2000. It is a purpose built facility which includes computer room, conference room, activity room,therapy room, arts and craft room and a spacious dining area. We deliver a service to people with physical and sensory disabilities across a broad age group.

Day Centre with Dining Area
The centre is named after Fr. John Sullivan SJ (1861-1933) who was ordained in 1907 following a distinguished career at the English bar and his conversion to Catholicism in 1896.

On his return to Ireland, Fr John Sullivan SJ became a constant visitor to the hospice in Harolds Cross and the night refuge run by the Sisters of Mercy, Brick Lane, Dublin. He spent a considerable number of years on the staff at Clongowes Wood College at Clane. Many cures were attributed to him. His remains are buried at St Xavier's Church in Dublin.
