We are waiting for more information from the Bishop’s office regarding times of Ceremonies.

Mass Intentions

If you wish to book a Mass, please contact the parish office in plenty of time.  Normally three families’ intentions are accepted for weekend Masses.  However, we have to be mindful of numbers in the Church so we might have to limit the number of Intentions at a particular mass.


Please remember Funeral Masses, when they occur, will replace the Mass of the Day.

On Sundays, Funerals will take place at the usual Mass times.

Only one Mass Intention can be taken for 10 am weekday masses.

State Exams 2021

We remember all our young parishioners who are sitting their Leaving Certificate exams at the moment.

A prayer to the Holy Spirit on their behalf would be appreciated.

Aid to the Church in Need –Mass Rock Revival

Following the Easter Octave this year, Aid to the Church in Need (ACN) Ireland launched a very special campaign inviting priests in each of the 26 dioceses of Ireland, to celebrate the Most Holy Sacrament of the Eucharist, at a Mass Rock located in their Diocese.  The intention of each of these 26 Mass Rock Masses was for ‘the renewal of the faith in Ireland through the intercession of the Irish Martyrs’.

Priests in each of the 26 dioceses returned to these secluded and sacred places of historical worship where once countless Irish Martyrs and their companions risked their lives to receive and celebrate the Most Holy Eucharist.

The settings for the Mass Rocks were wide and varied and yet all stunningly and uniquely beautiful; whether it be in a furry glen, on a bare rugged coastline, on a still, serene mountaintop, in a grassy green field covered in fresh dew or under a canopy of pine trees, with the soothing sounds of a gentle stream nearby… each Mass Rock had one thing in common i.e. it was found in a sacred wilderness and in a place of great serenity and closeness to God.

ACN Ireland would like to express their most sincere and heartfelt gratitude to all the priests who participated in the Holy Sacrament of the Mass at one of the 26 Mass Rocks: the places where Eternal Life was offered for those who regularly risked their temporal life to receive Jesus.

ACN Ireland invite you to join them in praying for the renewal of the faith in Ireland through the intercession of the Irish Martyrs.

Please support & spread the good news of the ACN Ireland Mass Rock Campaign, informing souls of their greatest gift in the Eucharist which, only gives life, love, grace, protection & salvation.
