DOMINICANS after  800 years in Limerick and three priests in the Dominican community in Limerick now, they are leaving the city. The Order currently has 125 Dominicans, just 51 of whom are under the age of 65. Dominican Convent Youghal founded 1268 by Thomas son of Maurice Fitzgerald who was Viceroy of Ireland. John Fitz Thomas his paternal grandfather established the Priory in Tralee in 1243, where he is buried.

Dominican Convent and church in Castlelyons was built by John Barry in 1307. There were forty three Dominican convents in Ireland in 1644. When the Dominicans in Tralee were forced to leave, they came to Knockanure and lived at Carrueragh in 1652 (or thereabouts) as a house of refuge during the Cromwellian plantation. The arrival could have been some time later as Fr. Dominic MacEgan, who died in prison in 1703 was described as Prior of Tralee. Prior in Tralee at time of Cromwell was Tadhg Moriarty (1603-’53) they came back to Tralee again in 1857.  Dominicans left Knockanure c 1804 to take up parish duties, among names mentioned were Fr Edmond Stack died 1781, Fr Bartholomew Shine came to Knockanure 1791 and made PP of Brosna and died in 1827.

World Mission Sunday is observed on October 19, 2014. It was created by Pope Pius XI in 1926 as the day of prayer and propaganda of missions.
