Castletown Church reopens

The first Mass since the end of June was celebrated at St. Joseph’s Church, Castletown Kinneigh, in the parish of Enniskeane on Sunday September 10th at 10.30am. The church had been closed for refurbishment and other essential works for 10 weeks.

The church is now fully accessible and has accessible toilets and is fitted with a T-loop system for people with hearing impairments.

It has a new entrance, with an interior glazed porch. It also has a quiet room which is welcoming for parents with young children.

The church has also been completely redecorated. Many historical artefacts have also been restored.
