As you arrive in Killimor from Portumna, on the N65, you will see St. Joseph’s Church situated on your left, at the east end of Killimor village in the townland of Garryad. Going in the main avenue you will notice the New Cemetery on the left, while further on, to the right, are memorials to priests who are interred in the Church Grounds.
The Church, St. Joseph’s Centre and the Parochial House stand on about a half statute acre of ground. Church records indicate that the building of the church began in 1835 and was completed by 1842. However old men of the parish maintained that the original plot, given by Lord Dunsandle, was one statute acre and contained two gardens.
