Parish History 1985 – 2020

A full history of St. Vincent’s Parish from its beginning to 1985 was written by Bert Harris and published in 1985. A number of parishioners thought that it would be good to update this history to cover the years when our parish priests were Canon Joe Cahill and Father John Joyce. This page will keep you up to date on the project.

Father John has very kindly written the first draft of the new history and you can download this by clicking on the cover of the pale green book. The latest draft of the content from parishioners can be seen by clicking on the blue cover.

We are keen to add more content to reflect different perspectives about parish life and would welcome your memories, stories and pictures. If you would like to contribute then please contact Stuart Jones at

We will use this page to keep you up to date on progress.
