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.
