Sister Declan (Maire B. De Paor) (aged 79)

6.9910.00

Description

I visited the Presentation Convent in Bagenalstown to meet well-known author Sister Declan, to record her life experiences, both in the convent, and in her journey of discovery of the writings of St Patrick, whose ‘Confessions’ she researched and edited. Her life as a nun proved to be unrestful in that she had a vocation to work in London looking after the poor, but this ambition was thwarted by her Superior, who advised her to do research at Maynooth on the Celtic tradition. In this recording Sr Declan also speaks about her own upbringing in Tramore, Co Waterford.
