Due to the COVID19 pandemic we have decided to cancel church services in both St. Mary’s, Donnybrook and St. Matthew’s, Irishtown for the next two Sundays – 15th and 22nd March. We will review the situation as it develops in the interim.

We intend to see this as a community initiative – we can all reach out to our neighbours, especially our elderly ones.

We hope we can all put our energy into working together. Pray that our positive energy and our own prayers will soften the horrible nature of this pandemic.

Rev John Marchant


You are very welcome to the Dublin Parishes of Donnybrook and Irishtown, and to the Church of Ireland community that worships there. Wherever you come from and whatever your background, we hope you will find us to be a welcoming community, and that our churches may become your spiritual home. Membership of our parish is open to all who wish to join us in our worship and fellowship.

We invite Christians of all traditions, who are communicants, to join us in receiving the sacrament of Holy Communion.
We also welcome you to our recently launched website which has been made possible through the hard work of Alison Watson of www.smartimaging.biz, who created it in memory of her beloved Aunt, the late Ms. Jean Sheil, a faithful parishioner of St. Matthew’s Church.

And if at any time you would like to explore the sacraments of Baptism or Marriage,
or any issue in your life, I would be flattered if you would contact me in confidence.
My personal mobile/ cell phone is (Ireland code +353) 087 419 6071.
My email is revjmarchant@gmail.com.
