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.
Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion
We wish to establish a rota of those who will serve as extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion at the weekend Masses (approximately once a month) between now and June 2020.
We should be grateful if existing and new ministers would contact Marie Breen at 087 1329035.
The Good Old Days, a collection of memories of Limerick and Clare by local author and historian Mary A. Moloney is being launched on November 23rd by Fr. Willie Teehan PP Castleconnell at the Castleoaks House Hotel at 7.00pm.
Refreshments, spot prizes and of course the book are all available on the night. We look forward to seeing you there.
