Parish History

The Parish of Kilnamanagh-Castleview

Our Parish has two places of worship. St.Kevin’s Church in Kilnamanagh and St Kilian’s Church in Castleview.St.Kevin’s was built in 1978 and St.Kilian’s three years later in 1981. The Late 1970’s and early 80s was a time of burgeoning development in Dublin and many new communities were established during those years.

The Luas line runs through the middle of the Parish and passengers coming from the Centre City should alight at the ‘Kingswood’ station, both churches are within a 10 minute walk from the stop.

Parish History: A Tale of Two Parishes

The Parish of Kilnamanagh-Castleview was officially constituted by Archbishop Diarmuid Martin in 2008. It was constituted from two formerly separate Parishes St.Kevins, Kilnamanagh and St.Kilian’s,Castleview. Both these parishes were small communities by Dublin standards and the amalgamation now forms one Parish with some 3,200 homes or 13,200 people according to census figures. The Parish is under the joint patronage of St.Kevin and St.Kilian, two Irish Monastic Saints who remind us vividly of Ireland’s Christian Heritage.
