St Mary Magdalene Church, Kilmyshall
St. Mary Magdalene Church, Kilmyshall was built in 1831. The architect Richard Pierce from Wexford, designed the Church. The Church is a large barn-type building with Gothic Georgian-style plain glass windows. These were replaced in 2003 with windows of identical pattern. The Church has recently been refurbished, and a new marble tabernacle and marble ambo has been added and the Church has also been repainted and new lighting installed.
In 2016 after a long delay due to the fact that the Church is a listed building, the roof was finally replaced and also insulated. It is through the great generosity of parishioners and all who supported the fundraising efforts of the Parish Council that this work has now been completed.
The Parish is served by our Priest Fr. Pat Duffy and the parish Council, whose aim is to build up a faith and caring community. It is our hope that our website will not only be informative, but will contribute to uniting all who live here and to help build up a community that is caring and willing to share their time and talents for the benefit of their parish community.

NET is a national ministry. NET began in the USA in 1981.
It has spread from there to Australia, Canada, Uganda, and in 2003 the first
team was went to Ireland. Our teams minister to parishes and schools all
across Ireland. As well, in the past few years NET Ireland has begun to send
missionaries on excursions to Scotland, England, and the United Arab Emirates.
One of NET’s primary purposes is evangelisation. Evangelisation means to share
the Good News of the Gospel Message. Every single one of our missionaries has
had a personal encounter with Jesus in his/her life, and has a personal relationship
with Him. This is extremely helpful in equipping our missionaries to communicate
to the youth the gospel message and the impact that Jesus’ Love has had on their lives,
on a peer-to-peer level.
During their training period, NET missionaries are put into teams. This year, we have
local teams ministering to parish/school communities in cork, Dunshaughlin, and
Athenry. These teams’ main priority is to build relationships with the young people of
the area, and help them grow in their faith. We also have a Road team, which travels
to schools and parishes all over Ireland putting on Encounter Days. We also have
two teams on permanent placement in Scotland this year.
