The Diocese covers a large geographical area, taking in Counties Cavan, Longford, Leitrim, most of County Roscommon and much of County Sligo in the Republic and some parishes in County Fermanagh in Northern Ireland.
Mothers' Union has 324 members in 18 branches across the Diocese. Whilst membership in some of our branches is quite small, we must never forget that we are part of a worldwide Christian organisation with over 3 million members throughout the world, and that we are united with them in prayer and worship. We share the same Aims and Objectives as we work to support marriage and Christian family life, and to help those who have not been so fortunate in life.
Our diocesan link is with the Diocese of Cork, Cloyne and Ross.

2020 Theme: Building hope and confidence
The outcomes of our global listening process MULOA (Mothers’ Union Listens, Observes and Acts) have enabled Worldwide Council to draw together key emerging elements, and thus shape the way forward for us as a movement.“Building hope and confidence” has been placed at the heart of our call to support individuals and families to transform their lives. As we build our hope and confidence in God we will be inspired and equipped to build hope and confidence in others, in both local and global context. So our themed resources for 2020 aim to help us live out our faith to build hope and confidence in ourselves as well as those we support, and to nurture our faith as we continue to walk forward in step with God
The piece of stained glass which was dedicated by Archbishop Jackson in Christ church Cathedral, Dublin. The central image of the piece is a tree with 13 Branches representing 13 decades of MU in Ireland and completes the project when trees were planted in all twelve dioceses. We planted trees in order to acknowledge Mothers’ Union rooted in prayer and faith and reaching out to our communities through our Branches and members.
