God is Love - Derry Diocesan Pastoral Plan (2018-2021)
Greencastle in the Sperrin foothills has a scattered population on its small farms. Up to the early years of the 20th century there were many Gaelic speakers in the area and around 1910 it had an Irish College.
The parish is quite rich in archeological remains, including an Ogham Stone.
Settlement patterns similar to the Beaghmore stone circles, which border the parish, and the Ceide Fields of North Mayo, are evident.

St. Patrick
On St. Patrick’s Day we are asked to remember in our prayers those who have emigrated, many of you reading this will likely have been touched by the sense of loss that comes with a loved one doing so.
St. Patrick first encountered Ireland as a migrant. Thus, it is fitting that on the Feast of the National Patron, we again seek to highlight the needs of the many Irish emigrants spread throughout the world.
Today we too remember in a special way those emigrants whose journey has been a hard one, particularly the elderly Irish in Britain, our undocumented in the United States and Irish prisoners overseas.
