‘With much quiet fervour’: a brief history of Dunlavin Roman Catholic parish and St.Nicholas of Myra church.



St. Nicholas of Myra Church in Dunlavin is over two hundred years old, but Roman Catholic worship has a far longer history in the area, This book briefly outlines the history of the parish before the church was built, and then examines the history of the church building itself. Both clergy and laity contributed to the story of the church, and the building changed and evolved over time. Many of these alterations are documented in this book. The numerous illustrations, many of them evocative of bygone ages, add to the story.


This is the story of the establishment and growth of a parish community, which involved a struggle against the odds, often against a backdrop of scant resources and insufficient funds. Despite many obstacles, the parish community built, maintained and continues to maintain a church of which the parishioners can be very proud. Though the early twenty-first century is a turbulent time for the Catholic Church, parishioners can draw on the past and, trusting in God, can face the future with courage and confidence.
