Welcome to the United Dioceses of Dublin and Glendalough (Church of Ireland)


You are very welcome to the webpages of the United Dioceses of Dublin and Glendalough, part of the Church of Ireland (an Anglican/Episcopal Church and a member of the Anglican and Porvoo Communions).

In these historic dioceses we, along with our friends in other Christian churches, continue a living tradition of Christian worship which dates from the earliest years of Christianity on the Island of Ireland.

These pages are kept regularly up to date so please come back often and catch up on the news, information about upcoming events and photos taken from events in the life of these dioceses.
