After trying to find English-speaking vocations in England , the Sisters of the Infant Jesus – Nicolas Barré (EJNB) left for Ireland in 1908 . And set up Drishane Convent in 1909 in order to supply a growing need for Sisters who were fluent in English in communities in Asia , and more particularly in Malaysia. Looking to make Drishane better known in Ireland, in 1910 the sisters published postcards, in black and white, and also colorized.
The Infant Jesus Sisters have now published these 18 postcards … some which we have seen before, others we have not. As an example, the postcard below shows the castle (covered in ivy) to the left of the two trees, and the main house between the two trees.
To see the photos, go to the IJS archive website, and you will find the photos in the embedded PDF’s (which you will have to scroll down through)
We would like to thank the very generous families of Kilcorney N.S. for their wonderful donations in aid of Cork Penny Dinners and the local SVP branch.
On Sunday afternoon, 29th Nov. 2020, a very impressive Historical Reenactment Group having travelled from the Kilmichael Site visited Millstreet to pay tribute at Mill Lane to the memory of Captain Paddy McCarthy the centenary of whose death in 1920 occurs about this time. A superbly dignified ceremony took place by the Group who came from Cork City and County. Following an uplifting introduction the Proclamation was read with great feeling. Appropriate prayers were recited. Seán Ó Cróinín from Cork City delivered an excellent speech regarding the life and death of Captain Paddy McCarthy. A gentleman with beautiful native Irish sang in a magnificent manner “Mo Ghile Mear” and “Amhrán na bhFiann”. The Organisers recognised that due to COVID-19 the event could not be advertised but hoped that in time to come a much bigger Tribute Event could take place with a far bigger attendance – at a time when COVID-19 will be a memory. Here we share a selection of images from Sunday’s event and we thank Seán Ó Cróinín for sharing two images recorded at Kilmichael over the weekend. (S.R.)
