THE CHURCH OF IRELAND has
been disestablished since 1871. It has 12 dioceses covering the whole of Ireland including both the Republic and Northern Ireland.
It also has an impressive and comprehensive web site with pages for each diocese. We
list parishes alphabetically by location, under their respective dioceses. Official diocesan organisations are listed before parishes.
