Welcome to the Kilmessan and Dunsany parish website. During this challenging time of Covid-19 many are being creative using modern means of communication. Fortunately we too can avail of the internet as such a means for the parish. It is an experiment and hopefully it will prove useful. If anyone has something to comment about please do so. Obviously, we have to be selective and discreet in what gets posted.

You may already have seen our recent bulletins, printed since the ‘lockdown’. I hope to make them available here. If you have relevant news please send it in using any of the contact details here. 

Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update:


We are now at level 3 which means we have no public Masses for these three weeks. Funeral attendance is down to 25 people and baptisms are postponed.  Unfortunately it appears that many are taking a more relaxed attitude towards adherence to the guidelines. I hope this does allow more contagion to occur. It is a time to take care because the signs are not good.


We continue to have Mass in private, so we remember those whose anniversaries occur around this time and we are in unity with those on the front-line. Let us do our best to keep safe.
