The Good Shepherd Church in Doughiska, Castlegar County Galway, was necessary to facilitate the population explosion in that area.

It now appears that the Good Shepherd is a parish in itself, meaning that it still in Castlegar, but not in the parish, I suppose? So, some editing of other pages needs to be done, when we get to the bottom of it.

Anyway, it has its own website at with some of its parish history onsite, as well as other relevant and good information. You can click on the image below, to take you there.
