Welcome to our Parish

Welcome to our new website here at the Parish of Athy! Our Parish is situated in the south western corner of the Archdiocese of Dublin. It has boundaries on the east and south with Narraghmore and Castledermot, both of which are also Parishes in the Dublin Archdiocese. To the west and north are the Parishes of Arles, Ballyadams, Stradbally and Monasterevin which are in the Diocese of Kildare & Leighlin.

Our Parish Church, St. Michael's, is located on the Monasterevin road in the centre of town, approximately 100 metres from the main street. The chapel of ease is located in Barrowhouse, a few kilometres out of the town.

Maybe you are new to the area, or perhaps you are wondering more about your own faith journey. Please feel welcome to join us, for Mass, for a social event, or just to find out more.
