Catholic faith

Ongoing formation and education in the parish of Oughterard


The parish has a newly refurbished room for Catholic and adult education, the Rev Richard Kirwan conference room, situated in the parish offices. This conference room is available for all parish related activities only.

Rev Richard Kirwan was the first parish priest of Oughterard, who built the church. He was also the first president of Queens College, Galway, and he built the famous “Quad” building that serves as the main administrative hub of the national university. 

We are in the process of organising ongoing support and formation for our parish volunteers, as well as offering soon some courses on scripture, prayer and parenting for the wider parish. 

Please keep up with social media posts and newsletter announcements, as well as the parish cloud calendar, to see what will be available from September 2022.
