Welcome to Our Parish


Straide is an historic and picturesque village situated in the heart of County Mayo, located between Foxford and Castlebar in the diocese of Achonry. The Cathedral town of the Diocese is Ballaghadeereen on the Mayo / Roscommon border. Straide is the birthplace of one of Ireland’s famous sons,  namely Michael Davitt, founder of the Land league in 1879.

Church Conservation Project

We urgently need funds to complete our Church Conservation Project. The project aims to restore the Church to its original condition, as when completed in 1916. This work is currently mid-way through completion.

We are now asking Friends of Straide Parish throughout the world to help with this project by donating to our Conservation Fund.

Coronavirus Outbreak


Many parishioners have volunteered to help those who may not be able to shop, collect medicines, go to the Post Office etc. during this Coronavirus outbreak.

If, at any time, you need help with these chores call me on (094) 9031029 and I will liaise with the many volunteers within the community who are very happy to help out.

Keep safe, keep healthy and, at all times, follow HSE / Government guidelines. Say a prayer, too, for all who have caught the virus and for all medical staff, carers and volunteers who are working so hard at this time.

Fr. Martin
