Always Remember
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

Welcome to our Parish of Balyna

Our parish of Balyna in north Kildare, Ireland, includes the three churches of Broadford, Johnstownbridge and Clogherinkoe. We have parish schools adjacent to each of these churches and also a fourth school in Cadamstown.

Our parish website is intended to be a source of information about our parish for locals and visitors alike. We welcome your feedback so that we can improve our website and our parish. Parish contact details are available at this link.
