Welcome to St Patrick's!
The parish of St Patrick's was one of the five original
medieval parishes of the city of Limerick. St Patrick's parish used
to encompass the old parishes of Ballysimon/Derrygalvin and Kilmurry
(now Monaleen). In 1704 St Nicholas' was a separate parish but by 1711
it had been joined with St Patrick's parish following the death of Fr
Michael Dwyer. The church in Kilquane was also in the parish at Athlunkard.
In 1971, to accommodate the rising population in the area,
Bishop Henry Murphy created the new parish of Monaleen from the area
in the west of St Patrick's parish. The boundaries of St Patrick's parish
were further reduced in 1981 when Bishop Jeremiah Newman created a new
parish called Our Lady Help of Christians.
