"People are the centre of the parish and this is your Sacred space. Even if you don't worship regularly, you will be welcomed into our churches for weddings, baptisms and other sacred occasions. We want to continue the great work we have been doing so that our parish churches become places of welcome, of invitation and of new openness..."

Fr. Francis Garvey P.P.

The Parish of Kiltoghert is a parish steeped in history, serving a wide area that includes Carrick-on-Shannon and the country townlands of Leitrim Village, Gowel and Jamestown. The parish is served by only three priests tending to all mass services, baptisms, weddings and deaths.

There is a rich vein of history running right through the parish, and the parish is fortunate in that the information has been well preserved so that it can be passed on from generation to generation. The parish is also progressive, a strength that can be seen with the work that is, or has been carried out in all four churches.

This site intends to be informative - making people aware of their history, while at the same time keeping them informed of latest news and developments, including the progress of St Mary's renovations.

If you have anything you would like to add to the site, please feel free to forward it to us in any format that suits you.
