Reflection

The Christian life is a calling from God to be companions of Jesus and work for the spread of his love and justice. All of us are asked to do this in our own lives.

Welcome to our Parish

Welcome and Céad mí­le fáilte to Birr Parish, home of St. Brendan's Church on Wilmer Road and The Church of the Annunciation, Carrig. The Christian community in Birr dates back to St. Brendan "the Elder" who chose Birr, "the place of the springs", for the location of his monastic community in the middle of the 6th Century. St. Brendan's Monastery was renowned for hospitality and scholarship . The famous copy of the four Gospels was created here. It is better known as "The Book Of Birr" or "McRegol Gospel". A facsimile copy of this Gospel is on display in Birr Library located in Birr Civic Offices beside the St. Brendan's Church on Wilmer Road.
