Ballycallan, Tullaroan & Freshford

Welcome to the Parish Cluster of

In 2019, following a revision of how parishes function, and in response to the dwindling number of clergy in the diocese, parishes in Ossory were invited to join together to pool resources that would make them of greater benefit to each other.  This clustering was based on geographical location as well as past cooperation and historical connections.

Under this new arrangement the parishes of Ballycallan, Tullaroan and Freshford were brought together and a plan formulated which would allow for clergy to provide pastoral cover for each other, as well as plan for a future which would involve more lay participation in the administration and running of the parish cluster.

This website is an initiative of the new parish grouping of Ballycallan, Tullaroan and Freshford. The links above will take you to different information on each parish, but also provide you with news common to the three parishes in the cluster.

This site is under development so please do bear with us.
