Welcome to the Web-site of
Mallow Union of Parishes
We are part of the Church of Ireland which is in turn part of the worldwide Anglican Communion with 70 million members in 164 countries.
We are located in the beautiful Blackwater valley in County Cork. The parish stretches from the Kerry border on one side to meet the neighbouring parish of Fermoy on the other side. To the north we touch County Limerick and so cover a very large area. The parish once had forty five or more churches is the area and so we have a rich history. This is excellent farming countryside covering part of the Golden vale. It is also the location of Cork Racecourse. The first ever steeple chase was run in this parish from Doneraile church to Buttevant church.
We invite you to browse our pages and hopefully you will get a sense of who we are as a people and as a community of faith. Better still, wherever you are in your faith journey, we invite you to join us at a service or other event and rest with us for a while, be reasurred that we will be enriched by your presence and whether you choose to stay with us, or journey back to your own faith tradition, we will value you as a pilgrim of Christ.
