Fr. Frank Drescher
Fr Frank Drescher, originally from Germany, is a priest of the Archdiocese of Dublin.
After the completion of his theological studies at the Pontifical Gregorian University and a pastoral placement as a deacon in Celbridge Parish, he was ordained to the priesthood in September 2020. Fr Frank has been curate at our parish since October 2020.
Canon Emeritus Walter Harris
Canon Harris studied in Clonliffe and was ordained on June 14th 1953.
He worked in many parishes throughout the Dublin diocese before being appointed Parish Priest of Blanchardstown in 1989.
He served as P.P. until he retired in 2003.
While he no longer has an official role in St. Brigid’s, we are very glad that he remains so much a part of our parish life.

“I am a married man from Coolock, we have four adult children. I graduated from All Hallows Drumcondra with an honours degree in Theology and Philosophy in 2008, I am also a graduate of Mater Dei and Maynooth Pontifical College (certificate in Marriage education).
I worked for a leading tool hire company for twenty years- 10 years in Coolmine industrial estate. Currently I work part time, as assistant to a liaison Officer in Rehabilitative training for a charity that supports people with limited mobility.
In 2012, I was ordained in the Pro Cathedral as part of the first group of permanent deacons ordained in Ireland. After ordination I was appointed to the parish where I lived- St Joseph the Worker Bonnybrook.
I have a great belief in, and commitment to marriage and I am a volunteer with ACCORD for the last 10 years working in marriage education.
I am a volunteer with Special Olympics and I mentor an athlete as part of the Athlete Leadership programme.
I was appointed to St Brigid’s Blanchardstown in October this year and I am looking forward to working in this parish over the coming years.”
Joining the team in 2004, Christine is responsible for the secretarial aspects of the parish – accounts, correspondence and parish records. Together with the sacristan, she is happy to deal with enquiries regarding arrangements for baptisms, marriages, Mass intentions, parish events and all other items that arise in a busy parish like ours.
