History of the Community in the Parish:
When the Poor Clares came to Harold’s Cross in 1803 the Convent was in the Parish of St Nicholas of Myra, Francis St, Dublin 8. In 1823 the Parish of Our Lady of Refuge, Rathmines was founded. When the Church was burnt in 1920, St Clare’s Chapel ‘Our Lady of the Angels’ was opened as a public oratory and later continued as a Chapel of Ease and continued as such to the Parish of Holy Rosary until 2009. The present Church of Holy Rosary was built in 1938.
This year, 2015, the three Parishes, Rathmines, Mount Argus (founded as a Parish about 1975) and Harold’s Cross are being linked together as one Parish.
