St. Vincent de Paul Fundraising Appeal 

For almost 200 years St Vincent de Paul has been supporting communities throughout Ireland including Dalkey.  Now, more than ever, we need your help.  Covid-19 and the economic impacts are ruinous for many families and we must do what we can to assist them.

If you would like to donate to SvP please follow this link

We represent you as we respond to requests for help. Please support us as much as you can.

Many of you will know Fr William Stuart from the parish as he has worked with us over the past number of years. He is currently based in south Lebanon where he runs a school for young refugee Syrian children who have fled their war torn country and he desperately needs funds to keep the school open especially now during these very challenging times.

A locally based company Hibernica Medical have offered to help the children in the run up to Christmas. They have sourced some beautiful Christmas themed face  masks  and will donate the proceeds from the sale of the entire shipment of masks ( except VAT) to raise funds for ‘schools for Syria’. So spread some Christmas cheer while helping this good cause by buying a box of 50 for €15 plus vat ( or 4 boxes, 200 masks,  for €50 plus vat).  

Wouldn’t it be great to see everyone in Dalkey wearing these masks this Christmas time? –  sign of our solidarity as a community in fighting the virus and at the same time supporting Fr. William as he tries to bring some joy into the lives of those poor Syrian children who through no fault of their own had to flee their country and are now homeless.

Order your masks now at or by emailing .

This year you have an opportunity whilst purchasing your Christmas Tree to support Dalkey Inter-Church Migrant Support Group. A percentage of each tree sold will go towards supporting those living in Direct Provision. The trees are grown in County Wicklow, and are beautiful specimens ranging in size from 4-12ft. Available from 28th November in the grounds of St. Patrick’s Church.
