Our Parish

barrow valley2_img_5995We are situated in the beautiful Barrow Valley in the county of Carlow in Ireland. The modern Parish of Bagenalstown, (Muine Bheag) includes the ancient ecclesiastical districts of Dunleckney, Lorum, Nurney, Sliguffe, Ballyellen, Fenagh and part of Agha. The modern Catholic parish has three Catholic Churches and four Churches of the Church of Ireland tradition serving about 6000 people.

We hope you find this website interesting and informative, challenging and creative. We keep it up to date and include our weekly Notices. Our main purpose is to reach people where they are with the Good News of Jesus Christ set in a modern context. We invite you to be interactive with our web-site and with the parish and we welcome suggestions, information and ideas for improving our parish and our web-site.

We thank all parishioners who make this site possible. Enjoy your visit and may God be with you today and forever.

Le gach dhea-ghui,
Declan Foley (Parish Priest)
