Welcome to our Parish!
Welcome and Céad míle fáilte to Roscommon Parish, home of the Sacred Heart Church, Roscommon Town and St Joseph’s Church, Kilteevan.
Roscommon is a county town growing in size and prosperity with a population nearing 6,000 people. A vibrant and diverse market town,
it is home to many tourist, sporting, cultural,commercial and administrative amenities. The name Roscommon comes from the
Irish ‘RosComáin’ meaning ‘Saint Coman’s wood’, the name of the Saint who first built a monastery in the area. Our faith community
continues to flourish and the spire of our beautiful Church can be seen from all approach roads to the town.
St Joseph’s Church is set in the beautiful village of Kilteevan, 5km from Roscommon Town. It is a vibrant community,
rich in history and heritage which enjoys all the benefits of rural living but with all the amenities of Roscommon Town close by.
