The property of St. Mary’s Abbey, Glencairn has been the much loved home of our monastic community since 1932. We give thanks to God for the continuous growth in membership in our community since our foundation and for the heritage and beauty of our surroundings at Glencairn.
The Sisters of St. Mary’s Abbey, Glencairn began seeking professional assistance to assess our future building requirements in 2008. The community recognised the necessity of upgrading our buildings in order to continue to maintain our presence here as a monastic community.
In 2011, planning permission was granted by Waterford County Council for major building and renovation works at the Abbey, followed by a period of fundraising. The project commenced on a phased basis in 2014. By July 2017, three phases of the project were successfully completed.
