© University of Limerick, Our Lady Help of Christians Parish
Welcome to Our Lady Help of Christians!
Our Lady Help of Christians parish was formed in 1981
to cater for the growing housing developments in the area and the expanding
college campuses of the National Institute of Technology and Thomond
College, which is now the University of Limerick. This parish was the
first parish in Ireland to be administered by priests of the Salesian
Order. The land on which the church stands was purchased from the Sisters
of the Little Company of Mary at Milford House.
Before 1981, this area of Limerick city was part of the
parish of Monaleen. The population of the parish is around 1,200 people,
but several thousand students live in the parish during the college
