Welcome to our Parish

Fáilte! We are a Roman Catholic community in north County Cork, one of 46 parishes in the Diocese of Cloyne, Ireland. We are located in a rural landscape along a beautiful stretch of the Blackwater valley. Our patron saints Craebhnait and Nicholas founded the first churches here in the Fifth Century.

The Venerable Nano Nagle, the foundress of the Presentation Sisters, was born here in 1718. Like those Christians who have gone before us, we endeavour to be a community of faith, worship and service. We invite you to join us at Mass this weekend and to be part of our parish family.
