You are here: Welcome

Welcome to our Parish website.  Ballinhassig Parish is in the Diocese of Cork and Ross.  It includes the areas of Ballygarvan, Ballyheada and Goggin’s Hill.  Each area has its own church and school. There are many active groups and ministries in the Parish.  The members give generously of their time, energy and efforts in supporting the parishioners to become an active vibrant, Christian and caring community.

We welcome all who have come to live in this Parish in recent times and encourage them to take an active role in the life of the parish.  The many and various groups in the Parish would welcome more help and new members.


We can do no great things only little things with great love.

You can do what I can’t do

I can do what you can’t do

Together we can do something beautiful for God 

(Mother Teresa)


We hope this website will provide you with the information you need in finding out more about our Parish and its activities.
