Donate Online

Our parishes of Skibbereen and Rath and The Islands depend entirely on the donations and contributions of parishioners and friends to fund the parishes and the services they provide. We thank all our parishioners and friends for your ongoing generous support.

You can support the work of our parishes by making a safe and secure online donation by clicking on the appropriate ‘DONATE’ button above:

    • You can choose to donate just once or tick a checkbox to donate on a more regular basis.
    • To donation without creating an account, click on “Proceed as Guest”. This is great for once-off donations or offerings.
    • If you intend to give regularly you might want to consider registering an account as this has some tax benefits for the Parish*. It also gives you further options for donating on a regular basis and allows you adjust your donation when you wish.

Our Parishes can achieve our goals of a sustainable financial structure with your help. For example:

  • Weekly Offering – €5
  • Monthly Offering – €21
  • Annual offering – €250

By using a Standing Order or the Donate button, for whatever amount your household can afford, we can share in a secure future for our Parishes.

*(Because the Parishes come under Charities legislation, any donation of over €250 in the year has a further tax benefit of up to €112 to a Parish.)

If you have any questions about the donate buttons or need any support, please contact the Parish Office 028-22828 or

Standing Order Forms



What if I don’t wish to give online?

The option to give online doesn’t suit everyone. A Standing Order can be set up by downloading and filling out this form. Please return it to the Parish Office.

Parishioners can still post envelopes through the letterbox at the Parish Office, The Presbytery, North Street, Skibbereen, Co Cork.
