St. Fergal’s Parish was constituted in 1975 from the parish of Queen of Peace. Archbishop Dermot Ryan invited the Franciscan Friars to undertake the pastoral care of the new parish. The Friars invited the Marist Sisters to teach in the school and to assist them in their pastoral work. The parish was placed under the patronage of St Fergal, an Irish missionary who became bishop of Salzburg in 767
In 1980 the present church was built, to replace the Nissan Hut church/school on Boghall Road. Pope John Paul 11 blessed the foundation stone during his visit to Maynooth the previous year
The Franciscan Order handed the administration of the parish back to the Archdiocese in June 2000, because of lack of personnel. Since then the parish has been administered by diocesan priests
