The Dioceses are located in the eastern midlands of Ireland, mainly in the province of Leinster, running from the River Shannon in the west of the dioceses to the Irish Sea north of Dublin in the east, and extending from a small part of Ulster in eastern Cavan nearly a hundred miles south to County Laois in the central midlands at our southern border.
