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. The parish is 50 years old this year.

During these 50 years there have been immense developments in our parish. We have seen a vast increase in the size of our community, a massive growth in our school population and many outstanding achievements of our sporting clubs at both juvenile and senior level.

This website was set up to keep the people of Monaleen – at home and abroad – informed and engaged with happenings at both a church and community level. Please let me know if you have anything you would like to contribute. Hopefully our regular church and community activities will be able to resume in the autumn.

New Parish Website

The Parish Council has commissioned a new parish website, which will hopefully be launched in the next few weeks. I wish to thank everyone in the parish and broader Monaleen community who have contributed and supported the current website which I set up 20 years ago, and have run on a voluntary basis ever since. I wish the Parish Council well with their new endeavour and hope it will continue to reflect the inclusivity of both the parish and community, which has always been the tradition in Monaleen.

Best wishes to all in Monaleen,

Ann Heffernan
