Welcome to Killaloe Diocese

handsWelcome to the website of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Killaloe. The site aims to show the various activities and ministries through which we try to live out God’s love in today’s world.

In these pages you can find out what we do, where it’s happening, who to contact and how it all comes together. Working together with our bishop, Kieran O’Reilly S.M.A., we in the Diocese strive to build a community which gives expression to our faith in Jesus where each person feels welcomed, accepted and valued.

With our online presence we seek to share our faith experience with a wider community and to inform our visitors of our pastoral activities. It is our hope that this website will be a helpful starting point for any search you may have. We would always value your contribution and we would always be happy to hear from you. Thank you for your visit and please come again soon. 

If you have any suggestions or comments, please feel free to contact us and leave your feedback.
