The Parish Assembly is a group of parishioners who assist with the running and development of Glanmire parish. A new assembly is formed every 3 years. All parishioners are asked for nominations for the Parish Assembly; this nomination can be oneself or another parishioner. Nominees are invited to join the Parish Assembly.  The current assembly was formed in 2019.
