Oliver Whyte/Joe Ring Church Repair

St. Mary's RC Church (1813) and Holy Trinity COI Church(1872) have both developed severe age related  structural defects which will cost about €2,000,000 to correct.


Large fundraising efforts are  going on in the area for the last couple of years.
Westport United Soccer Club are running a "Stars In Their Eyes" concert in the Castlecourt Hotel, Westport on 02.02.2018. Ticket money goes to the club and participants are encouraged to raise money seperately for a charity of ther own choice.
Participants - restrauteurJoe Ring and Dr. Oliver Whyte Snr,  - decided to run a joint campaign to raise funds for the decaying churches which are of great spiritual, historical, architectural and tourist value to Westport and indeed the broader community.
We would really greatly appreciate any donation great or small and hope that you can come to enjoy the restored churches in the future as well as the beautiful town of Westport which has won three National Tidy Towns awards, the international Floral Entente Award and the Irish Times newspaper "Best Town To Live In Ireland"
This campaign will run until 28.20.2017.
