Corlough-Templeport is a rural parish located in West Cavan, situated between Ballyconnell, Swanlinbar and Ballinamore. Corlough formed part of the larger parish of Templeport until 1877 when Corlough was made a separate parish. In 2016, in line with Diocesan parish re-alignment - Corlough was amalgamated again with the Parish of Templeport to form what is now known as "The Parish of Corlough-Templeport". There are three churches in the parish: St. Patrick's Church, Corlough; St. Mogue's Church, Bawnboy; and St. Patrick's Church, Kilnavart.
As a parish we welcome anyone who wishes to join us in any way for worship and active involvement in our life and activities. We are very proud of our parish and strive to be welcoming and encouraging to all.
