The parish of St Conleth is one of the largest in the country. The population within the parish boundaries is more than 25,000. The Christian presence in this area dates back continuously to the times of St Brigid and St Conleth who were contemporaries in the 5th century.
The parish has three churches catering for the worshipping Catholic community, St Conleth’s Parish Church, Cill Mhuire Ballymany and the Dominican Church.
The parish community is served by the Parish Team, consisting of 5 priests, 2 parish sisters and 1 Pastoral worker. There are also a great number of lay people actively involved in ministry groups and organisations, all of which contribute to a parish which is very much alive.
As a parish we welcome anyone who wishes to join us in any way for worship, for active involvement in our life and activities.
We strive to make our community a true Christian people, who try to live by the core values of the Gospel – love, compassion, support and acceptance.

Friends of Calcutta, an Irish registered charity founded in 1994 is a totally voluntary organisation which is very closely associated with the ongoing humanitarian work in Calcutta (now known as Kolkata). From very humble beginnings through the gathering together of returned volunteers in Fermoy, Co. Cork in 1994, to raise funds for Sr.Cyrils’ much needed night shelter for vulnerable girls; the organization has grown to today funding many projects which serve the most marginalised, both in the Kolkata and throughout the state of West Bengal.
They will be in our parish next week to facilitate a “Used Clothing Collection” for their Charity.
If you are able, please support this excellent cause by bringing any used clothing (in good condition) you may have, on Wednesday October 15 at Cill Mhuire from 3pm to 4pm and at St Conleth’s Parish Church from 4pm to 6pm
