Youghal Union of Parishes

The Union is made up of the three parishes of Youghal, Castlemartyr and Ardmore.

The Collegiate Church of Saint Mary, Youghal, has been a place of Christian worship for over 1,300 years. The building of enormous historical significance is a National Monument of Ireland and is now in the care of Youghal Town Council under the terms of a unique agreement to safeguard its future. Worship is held in it each Sunday at 11.30a.m.

Saint Anne, Castlemartyr, situated on a slight rise to the north of the main street in the village, dates to the early 18th century. Services are held every Sunday at 10.00 a.m.

Saint Paul, Ardmore, is an early 19th century church, and is open in the summer months (June – August) for Sunday worship at 10.00 a.m.
