Our Name

On April 14, 1821 Fr Phillip Conolly arrived in Hobart Town. Requesting some land upon which to establish his ministry, he was granted the land bordered by Harrington, Patrick and Brisbane streets.

He built a house near our current playground. He named his house, 'Killard',which is Gaelic for 'church on the hill'. As part of his building he also constructed a small chapel from timber.

The chapel was named St Virgil’s.
