Our Parish

We are a Catholic Parish in the Archdiocese of Dublin located on the western suburbs of Dublin City. The Parish is centred on the busy village of Castleknock and is bounded to the east by the boundary wall of Phoenix Park, to the north by the Navan Road (N3), to the west by the M50 and to the south by the River Liffey.

Our Name
Our Church is named after Our Lady, Mother of the Church. A shrine to Our Lady is located in the Church. The shrine contains a copy of a very old fresco of Our Lady Mother of the Church from St Peter’s Basilica, in Rome.

Our Church is located on Beechpark Lawn. It has a large car park at the rear which can be accessed via Auburn Avenue. The Church is located close to the Nos. 37 and 38 bus routes.

Our Lady’s Parish has about 2,200 households comprising 9,000 parishioners. The Parish has a young age profile as over half the population are aged 17 or under.
