Fáilte / Welcome

The Parish of St Oliver Plunkett is situated in West Belfast, in the Diocese of Down and Connor in the north of Ireland. It was established in 1976, five years after the church was built. The boundaries of the Parish are roughly Shaws Road, Suffolk Road and Stewartstown Road. The main areas of the Parish are Lenadoon, Glencolin and Stewartstown.

Fr. Aidan Brankin is currently our Parish Priest. We are also served by Sr. Claire and Sr. Emmanuel who live in the Convent of Mercy next door to the church. The Parish has a primary school, a pre-school and a nursery.

If you are new to the Parish, please contact us to arrange a home visit. If you already a parishioner, feel free to browse our website and let us know what you think.
