Praying for the Diocese 2014: Charlestown (Kilbeagh) parish is situated in Co. Mayo but it does venture across the border into Co. Sligo to embrace the territory of Bellaghy (Old Town) within its boundaries.There are eight wayside shrines in the parish, one commemorating the Eucharistic Congress of 1932, two dating from the Marian Year of 1954, the others dedicated to Our Lady or the Sacred Heart are a testimony to the faith of the immediate locality. There is one off the road shrine dedicated to St. Attracta alongside a well also associated with St. Attracta. The parish has two churches, St. James's in Charlestown & St. Patrick's in Bushfield. There are four National Schools, three pre-schools, one secondary school, two Nursing Homes & one International Airport all within the parish boundary. Sport & community activities are very much a feature of life in the parish. Just this year the Community of St. Attracta's NS won the Meitheal Award, the second time for Charlestown to win this special award. Journalist & author, John Healy, playwright, Tom Murphy & bishops, Cassidy (Tuam), O'Doherty (Manila) & Morrisroe (Achonry) were natives of the parish. Fr. Tommy Johnston is the parish priest of Charlestown & Fr. John Doherty is the priest in residence.
