Woodford and Looscaun

Parish Priest:Fr. Kieran O'Rourke(090) 974 9100

A few miles outside Woodford at Lough Atoric, we have the site of a Mass Rock. Here during Penal times priests and people risked everything to attend Mass. The following generations valued their faith highly and passed this on by word and action.
This resulted in the nurturing of many vocations in the parish. The priests, brothers and nuns brought the Gospel to people at home and abroad. Today all over the world their great work is being continued by the natives of many countries.
