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.

In the words of Pope Francis
Fast from hurting words …and say kind words
Fast from sadness …and be filled with gratitude
Fast from anger …and be filled with patience
Fast from pessimism …and be filled with hope
Fast from worries …and have trust in God
Fast from complaints …
