Munster

Munster, Ontario (also known as Munster Hamlet) is a large village situated south-west of Stittsville, west of Richmond and north of North Gower.  Munster was established as a post office in the Goulbourn Township by 1866.  Since 2001 it has become part of the City of Ottawa.

Munster was home to the Anglican parish church of St. Stephens, which closed in the 1960s. At that time, Munster was a simple cross-roads village of a handful of houses. In the 1970s, a rural suburb, marketed as "Munster Hamlet", added about 400 houses to the community. The community was built in four quadrants. The church was then re-opened as the Munster branch of the Ottawa Public Library.

Munster is named after the province of Munster, in Ireland.
