Impact of the Corona Virus (Covid19)
Due to measures introduced by the HSE and guidelines from Dublin Diocese all public Masses in Ballygall parish are suspended until further notice. One Mass will be celebrated behind closed doors in Ballygall church each weekday (Mon-Sat) at 10.00am and accessible to parishioners via webcam at this link.

The church is open once more for private prayer only.
The official time is from 12 midday until 6pm each day. However where possible the church may be opened earlier depending on days when there is a funeral. The church is generally left open later but this may change from a day to day basis. People are reminded of the HSE requirements at all times. Distancing, hand sanitising etc are the current norms. It is suggested that visits be kept to a maximum of 15 minutes and that visitors refrain from sitting in the seat. However if a seat is required you are asked to take responsibility for keeping the area clean after your visit. This will mean bringing a wipe and rubbing the seat and area in front of you after use.
