Suspension of all Public Masses

Covid-19 Level Three Restrictions apply from Saturday, 19th September onwards.

By order of the Government, there will be no Public Masses in St. Finian’s Church or in the Airport Church for the time being.

Fr. Des and Fr. Antony will continue to offer Mass each day for your intentions. You can join them through our Webcam here every Sunday at 10am, and from Monday to Saturday at 7pm.

Please make a Spiritual Communion. You can receive great grace from the Lord by quietly inviting Him into your soul at Holy Communion time even though you don’t receive physically.

The following is a prayer for Spiritual Communion:

My Jesus, I Believe that you are present in the most Blessed Sacrament. I love you above all things and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if you were already there, and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen

The church will remain open daily for private prayer - from 9.30am. to 3pm.

Mass intentions can be booked with Stephanie at or on 01 8409043.

Feast of All Saints


This Sunday, November 1st, we celebrate the Feast of All Saints. They left their mark on the earth for you, for us, for our children to come. Thank you, God, for the tremendous sacrifices made by those who have gone before us.

Bless the memories of your saints, O God. May we learn how to walk wisely from their examples of faith, dedication, worship, and love.

Thank you to all our parishioners who left in their November Altar List of the Dead. There are still some lists available inside the front door of the church. Please take one home and maybe take one for your neighbour - as they may not be able to visit the church but would like to leave a list in. During the month of November, your list of the dead will remain on the altar and every First Friday of each month your loved ones will be remembered in our Daily Mass. May they rest in peace


We remember our parishioners who sadly passed away this year. May the Lord keep them safe with Him in His Kingdom of Love.


The Annual Mass for our deceased in 2020 will be celebrated on Tuesday 17th November at 7pm. This Mass will be on webcam as the Government restrictions do not yet allow us to have public Mass.
If you have lost a relative outside of the parish during the last year we will also be offering a special Mass for them on Thursday 26th November at 7pm, again on our webcam. Please let us know if you have lost a relative in the last year outside the parish if you would like them to be prayed for by name at that Mass.

Please call Steph on 01 8409043 or email her at

The Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed - Monday 2nd November.

We pray for all our faithful departed on this day. May they be filled with God’s Heavenly Grace.



Volunteers Thank you to all our wonderful team of volunteers who help out each day in both churches making our time in the church a safe one. We cannot thank you enough for all your good work in keeping all our parishioners safe. Your time and dedication is very much appreciated.


We are still in need of some Weekday volunteers. If you feel that you would be able to help and join this group, please contact Stephanie in the parish office.

Following new guidelines from the Archbishop, Sunday Missalettes will no longer be available from the Parish until further notice. You can now download your Sunday Missalettes by following the link below.

A mass leaflet with the correct readings for each Sunday can be downloaded HERE.

Holy Hour via webcam

There will be a Holy Hour every Friday in November to join together in prayer for the Holy Souls and for persecuted Christians.

The Blessed Sacrament will be exposed on the altar at 6pm on the four Fridays of November - ending with Benediction just before the 7pm Mass.

Please join us via the webcam. Holy Hour.

October - the Month of the Rosary

We thank our volunteers who prayed the Rosary on the webcam each day for the month of October. We continue to pray to Our Mother Mary to keep us safe and protect us from the coronavirus.

Baptisms have been postponed in the parish due to Government guidelines. We apologise to all families involved. We will be in touch with all families who have booked Baptisms to keep you updated. As soon as restrictions are lifted, we will celebrate Baptisms again.

Thank you for your understanding.


We are blessed to have our church open every day from 9am to 3pm. In order to keep everyone safe, we ask that you practice some guidelines that have been put into place:


The middle section of the church is only to be used when sitting or kneeling to pray.


Please make sure that you are six feet away from others.

“Social justice cannot be attained by violence. Violence kills what it intends to create”

“Freedom consists not in doing what we like, but in having the right to do what we ought.”

“People are like wine – some turn to vinegar, but the best improve with age.”

“A democracy without values easily turns into open or thinly disguised totalitarianism.”
