Straide Parish Website
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.
For the duration of the Corona Virus pandemic, necessitating the closure of Churches for public worship, Masses will be live-streamed from Straide Church at the times scheduled on the weekly newsletter. Please join us from your home as we pray for one another and for the scheduled intentions.
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.
