Killeen Church

Still a focal point in the community; as it was over a hundred years ago.

Although the Catholic church in Ireland has undergone many changes over the last few years, St. Patricks in Louisburgh and Holy Family Church in Killeen remain open and are very much part of life in our community.

It is testament to the united and resilient nature of the people of Kilgeever Parish, who despite many challenges, have continued to support our two local churches.

Killeen church is such a beautiful yet intimate church. It has served the people of Killeen for over a hundred years. Indeed, Louisburgh the parish church will celebrate it's 150 years anniversary next year.
