Wedding at Claddagh

Welcome to our website.

We are a community of Dominican Friars, committed to building up the community of the local Church in that part of Galway known as Claddagh.

The church and priory are dedicated to Our Lady under the title, St Mary on the Hill.

We hope our website will reach out to a wider community.





Suggestions for Lent: Building on the Word of God or the Bible.


1.ECHOES OF GOD: Journeying with the word of God by David McLoughlin.  A 7-week course for individuals and groups and links with the ‘God who Speaks’ project of Conference of Bishops of England and Wales. It is online.


2.PREPARING FOR NEW LIFE: Six Lenten Reflection evenings with Sr Therese Fitzgerald (Sister of Sion – dedicated to teaching Scripture).

These reflections are on ZOOM and require registration and a €15 contribution. Diocese of Limerick initiative.             


3.THE GOSPEL OF THE DAY: As many follow the daily Mass from the Claddagh on webcam, we will focus on the Gospel readings for Lent with a daily reflection, and prayers flowing from the Gospel – The Mass times are on the website.

See website – or (and go to Galway).
