Killaloe and Stradbally Union


The Parish of Stradbally (Castleconnell) is situated on the picturesque banks of the River Shannon about half-way between Killaloe and Limerick , and the parish has long been joined with the parish across the river in Clonlara, known ecclesiastically as Kiltinanlea.

All Saints' Church in Castleconnell is a delightful early nineteenth century building, full of interesting plaques associated with local families, including Sir Richard Bourke, sometime Governor-General of Australia, who actually died in the church! Sunday worship is held at 9.30am every week and there is a thriving congregation of about 35 and a vibrant Sunday School.

St Senan's Church, Clonlara is used once a month and has a small but dedicated congregation, and major events such as Harvest Thanksgiving and Carol Services are generously supported by the wider community.
