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 4,400 homes.

Forty four 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 (May 2015 is the 3rd edition) and has built up a vast amount of information on all aspects of life in Monaleen, both church and community. I might have updated Msgr. Dan’s quote below, but it seems to be just as relevant today as it was in 2003.

“Welcome to Monaleen Parish Website which I hope you will find interesting and informative. Browsing through its pages, you get a glimpse of the many and varied activities of our parish life. May it also encourage you to get involved in your own community or come and join ours.”

Msgr. Daniel Neenan P.P.

Your images will self-adjust in size because of the col-md-3 and col-sm-4 containers which represent the column the image goes into. This media box is responsive which means as your browser shrinks in size, the column with the image and the column with the content will automatically adjust. For mobile phones, the image will move above the content. You can change the column sizes with the classes on each column. Make sure both columns total 12 because this is based on a 12 column grid layout. For reference of columns in Bootstrap, refer to this:
