  • The original Corpus Christi Church in Moyross, built in 1978, was destroyed in a fire on 22 June 1998 due to an electrical fault. A new church was built in its place to the designs of architect John McMahon.
  • According to a plaque in the porch of the building, Bishop Donal Murray opened the church in April 2000.
  • This site was one of 23 venues for the 31st edition of EVA in 2007, curated by Klaus Ottmann (b. 1964, Germany).
  • Corpus Christi was one of numerous sites for a project by Miriam Lohan (b. 1975, Ireland) titled Ringing Limerick. On 7 May 2007, between the times of 11:15am and 11:45am, the artist organised 13 churches around Limerick city to ring their bells simultaneously.
