Sister Rosario recalls her early years as a child in Drogheda, and her decision to join the Presentation Sisters in Cork in 1940. She studied for a B.Mus. degree under Professor Fleischmann at UCC and remembers her happy time there, and the great enthusiasm for music teaching engendered by the professor. She taught music at South Presentation, and in the early days she had to obtain permission from the Reverend Mother to go to Tilly Fleischmann for piano lessons. In the recording, she reads some letters from Prof. Fleischmann congratulating her on her successes in the competition and in her overall contribution to the teaching of music.
