St. Saviour’s Community Development Group
Until 1973, the Dominicans were a religious community in Limerick City. In 1973, they were asked by the then Bishop, Henry Murphy to form a new parish, which would be located between the Roxborough Road and Glenworth Street. The first parish priest of the new parish was Fr Clement Lavery OP. The present day population of the parish of St Saviour’s is around 2,500.
St Saviour’s Community Group has been working in their community (Lower Hyde Rd., Carey’s Rd. and City Centre) since 2008. The group, comprised of local residents, employ a Development Worker who works with the committee and the local community to support community activities, adult education and the development of community facilities. PAUL Partnership provides funding support as well as supports to the Development Worker.
