Trish O’Neill has been employed by the Parish since November 1st 2001. She works with both our Priests in most areas of ministry. Trish is a native of Lisburn in Co Antrim, where she lived until her marriage to Peter, a native of Clane, in 1982. Trish studied Social Science and Youth & Community work in Northern Ireland, and became involved in Clane Youth Club on arriving here. She has three daughters, Laura, Ashleigh and Claire, who grew up in Clane and still live there. Trish became involved in wider parish activities in the mid 1980s at the invitation of Fr Kelly, then Parish Priest. She undertook further studies in St Patrick’s College, Maynooth, gaining her H.Dip in Pastoral Studies in June of 2001. In 2003 she graduated in youth Ministry studies from St Mary’s College, Belfast and the Centre for Ministry Studies in the US. Her involvement with young people over the years has given her particular experience for her work in the area of youth ministry, which is where most of her parish work is concentrated.
