Our Lady & St Brendan’s Church was built in 1970. The parish was established as a new parish in Tralee in 1985. There are 2,500 families in the parish.

A Short History of the Church

Plans got underway to build a new church to cater for the growing population of Tralee in the mid-sixties.  Rev. Peter  Scott  C.C. was appointed to establish a fund raising organisation which raised £88,000. A three quarter acre site was purchased from Miss Joanie O’Connell of Upper Rock Street, Tralee for £4,000.

Local architect Mr. Dan Kennedy was appointed to design a suitable place of worship for 950 people close to the altar. Fitzgerald Brothers were appointed builders to undertake the work. Whilst the estimated cost was £90,000 this increased to £114,000 due to higher wages and material costs.
