Diocese of Achonry

“Companions on the journey”

Bishop’s Welcome

I am delighted to welcome you to our website!  The Diocese of Achonry has twenty-three parishes in Counties Roscommon, Sligo, and Mayo.  The patron saints of the Diocese are St. Nathy and St. Attracta.  The Cathedral of the Annunciation and St. Nathy is situated in Ballaghaderreen, Co. Roscommon.

In baptism we were called to be disciples of Christ.  In that grace filled moment we entered into communion with Christ and one another.  Pope Benedict reminded us that we are all “co-responsible” for the life of the Church.  Pope Francis emphasises “synodality” (walking together) as a model of being Church.  In Achonry we walk together as disciples, conscious that we are all “co-responsible” for the life the Church in our Diocese.

I hope you find our website helpful and informative.  If there is any further information you need, please do not hesitate to get in contact with the Diocesan Office.

Wishing you every blessing!

+Paul Dempsey,

Bishop of Achonry.
