Church of the Irish Martyrs
In 1990 plans were drawn up for a new church project to cater for the growing population of the town. At the time it was estimated that a church capable of holding 800 people would be required. The church project was initiated by Bishop Anthony McFeely and opened in 1994. It was the first church in Ireland to be named after the Irish Catholic Martyrs.
An old abbey located in the parish dates back to the 13th or 14th century. In 2000 it was decided to create a new parish and call it after the abbey. The site of the abbey is visible from the Church and its graveyard, which dates from 1756, is still in use to this day. The parish has a population of 6000. The parish priests are Fr. Brian Quinn and Fr. Joe O'Donnell.
