Welcome to our Mungret Village website!

Mungret parish contains a striking contrast between the urban Raheen section and rural Crecora. Its location on the outskirts of Limerick City means that this parish is growing rapidly, as the city expands. The current population of the parish is estimated at about 9000.

2013 saw a major upgrade of the village with new walkways, green areas, and traffic management being installed. 2016 will see new cycleways and footpaths joining the village up with Raheen and the building of two new primary schools and a public park and playground on the grounds of Mungret College.

In the Catholic Directory of 1837, Mungret parish is referred to as Loghmore. In the same year the parish name was changed to Mungret. According to Lewis, the civil parish of Loghmore comprised of Crecora, Mungret, Knocknagall and part of Kilpeacon, with chapels in Crecora and Mungret.

The name Mungret is supposedly derived from the Irish Muine Gairid, meaning 'the Short Hill', or 'the Short Thicket or Grove', although according to 'Limerick, the Rich Land', this definition was a guess by John O'Donovan in 1840. Other Irish forms of the name are Imungram and Moungairid.
