St Paul’s, Glenageary
Rector: The Revd Gary Dowd
The name Glenageary is derived from an Irish place name meaning “the glen of the sheep”. The Parish is a compact geographical area located in close proximity to the sea and to the villages of Glasthule, Sandycove, Dalkey and Killiney.
The church building dates from 1868 and was one of seven that were built in the old parish of Monkstown. It cost £4000 to construct and the money was provided out of a bequest by a Miss Shannon, described as a wealthy lady of Belfast. The church has been modified on several occasions since it opened and a nine month refurbishment project was completed in 2013.
In 2007 a much anticipated and long awaited new parish centre was opened in the grounds of the church. Of contemporary design and finished to a high specification, it now provides state of the art facilities for both parish and community based organisations.
