Gifting of letters of Nano Nagle

On the feast of the Sacred Heart, 8th June 2018, we, the Ursuline Sisters gifted to the Presentation Sisters seven letters written by Nano Nagle (foundress of the Presentation Sisters) between 1769 and 1771. These letters were written to Miss Eleanor Fitzsimons as she was completing her novitiate with the Ursulines in Paris in order return to Cork to open the first Ursuline Convent in Ireland, where sisters would assist Nano in her work for the education of poor Catholic children during Penal Times. These letters will now be kept in the Nano Nagle Place archives in Cork.
