Christian worship has been offered to Almighty God on the site of St Mary’s Collegiate Church for over 1,500 years, and in the present building for 801 years.Our other churches too are steeped in Christian worship and tradition. The Churches are a physical expression, in stone and in art, of the mystery and majesty of God our creator, but the heart of the churches are worshipping communities, who gather together in the beauty of holiness. Despite the uniquely turbulent history of the Irish church.
Whether you are visiting from across the globe or just down the road, you are sure to find a warm welcome in our midst.
