Celebrating 50 years in Ballygriffin

Nano Nagle Birthplace, Ballygriffin will celebrate the 50th Birthday of its purchase by the Presentation Sisters on April 26th.  Sister Anthony Maloney of Cloyne was the main inspiration behind the transfer of property from Mr. John Cronin to the Sisters.  The Coach House of the Nagle Family has been renovated as a residence and the Conference Centre and Bungalows now grace the space in the shadow of the Nagle Mountains where Nano played with her siblings in the early -18th century.

At 2:00 p.m. on that day we shall live-stream a prayer service followed by refreshments and conversation. You are invited to attend, and if you are available to come, we would appreciate knowing this by April 19th as we need a week’s notice for catering purposes.

Many thanks on behalf of the planning committee. Sincerely, Lois Greene, pbvm, Director

Please watch here for link to live-stream closer to the time.
