Broadford

The Catholic parish of Broadford, situated in south-east Clare, is a parish in the diocese of Killaloe. The present day Catholic parish of Broadford grew out of the Mediaeval parishes of Kilseily and Killokennedy. At some time the parish of Kilseily was amalgamated with part of the parish of Killokennedy. Eventually the older names were dropped for the present name of the parish i.e. Broadford. There are three church buildings in Broadford parish. These church buildings serve the present Catholic population of almost 800 parishioners.
Broadford parish is now part of a group or cluster of parishes. In 2004 the Killaloe Diocesan Pastoral Plan identified the need for parishes to work together collaboratively, sharing resources and gifts and enabling the ministry needs of the parishes to be met with a declining number of priests.  In response to the Diocesan Pastoral Plan a Cluster of South East Clare parishes was set up in 2009 among the parishes of O’Callaghan’s Mills, Ogonnelloe, Killaloe, Broadford, Clonlara and Castleconnell (Co.Limerick). One benefit of this clustering of parishes is that there will always be priest available for Masses, weddings, baptisms, funerals while the priest of the parish is away on holiday or ill. Training in ministries for the parishes of the cluster eg. Choirs, readers, Eucharisitc Ministers will in future take place in a central location in the Cluster.
