St. Mary Magdalene’s Parish, Monaleen

Welcome to our parish website – we hope you find it informative and return regularly. Your feedback is very welcome and please let me know if there are any errors or omissions.

For those who are not familiar with our parish, Monaleen is located to the east of Limerick city, just off the Dublin Road, in Castletroy. It was originally part of St. Patrick’s Parish on Clare Street, but was set up as an independent parish in 1971. At that time there were about 380 homes in our parish. Now we have approximately 4,500 homes.

Forty eight years have seen immense changes in our parish. We have seen a vast increase in the size of our community, and a massive growth of our school population, with an additional primary school, and a highly successful second-level school, with outstanding achievements of our sporting clubs at both juvenile and senior level.

Our parish website has been online since 2003 and has built up a vast amount of information on all aspects of life in Monaleen, both church and community.

These are a few recent notices gathered from the Parish Newsletter and Monaleen Notes (Limerick Leader) which may be of interest. Please go to Parish Newsletter and Noticeboard for a more extensive list.
