Praying for the Diocese 2014: Foxford (traditionally known as Toomore) is situated in east Mayo. The parish boundary on the west is the river Moy which separates the parish from the diocese of Killala. There are three churches in the parish. On the north side, tucked into the Ox Mountains is the church at Attymachugh, which originally was a primary school. On the east side bordering the parish of Swinford, is the church of the Assumption in Toomore. The parish church in Foxford was built in 1879. In 1961-62 major renovations were carried out on the church, and on 27th. September 1962, Bishop James Fergus re-dedicated the church to St. Michael, the Archangel. The parish is also home to the beautiful Covent Chapel which was built by the Sisters of Charity in 1925. The Foxford Woollen Mills, founded by the Sisters of Charity in 1892, is still in operation and attracts many visitors throughout the year. Foxford has an excellent Addiction Treatment Centre, appropriately called 'Hope House'. There is one primary school, Scoil an Croí Naofa, with over two hundred and sixty pupils, one secondary school, St. Joseph's. Fr. Padraig Costello is the parish priest of Foxford.
