St Mary's Parish - Lucan
We are a suburban community of 5,000 homes with a population of approximately 13,000 people. The Parish is an old one. The church was built in the early 1800's when Lucan was a small rural village. Since the 1960's Lucan has been part of the expansion of the population of Dublin and has seen a massive transformation, from a small village to a densely populated suburb. Despite the rapid expansion, Lucan has retained much of its charm and the Village itself has retained the character which makes it so endearing. Lucan House in the centre of the Village, is the residence of the Italian Ambassador to Ireland.
There are now three Parish communities in Lucan. Ourselves, St. Patrick's Esker-Dodsboro and the Divine Mercy Parish in Lucan South. We are grouped together as a pastoral area and work in close co-operation with one another.
