St. Margaret's - Stcanices

Go to content

Main menu:


St Margaret's is situated at the northern end of the parish near the end of the Dublin Airport runway. The community in St Margaret's is composed of several groupings, from the Rivermead /Toberburr housing area, to the farmlands surrounding it to the small groups of houses in this beautiful rural setting. The people who are involved in the church have a deep respect and love for her and are willing to assist whenever the need arises.

The area is served by three schools: St Margaret's (close to the church), Our Lady Queen of Ireland, Rivermead, and Kilcoskan. Each of the schools plays a vital part in the community and is well served by the dedicated teaching staff.

We are lucky to have the services of Fr Gabriel O'Dowd as the resident priest. He is a wise man with a very interesting career and looks much younger than his years. Fr O'Dowd welcomes you if you decide to join his community of Christians in the Catholic Church.

The local bus is the 40b and will also pass through Finglas Village
