Convent girls in 1954 and the Millennium Arch


Convent girls with Sr. Dympna in the early 1950s


The following is from the letter from Marie Shaw which accompanied this great photo of her class in Listowel sixty years ago.

Back Row: Eleanor Leahy, Eileen Barrett, ? McCarthy, Celia Carroll, Rose Healy-Fitzmaurice, ?Walsh, Marie Neligan (me), Doreen Stack, Nora O'Keefe, ? Enright.

Middle Row: Kathleen Fitzgerald, ? Noonan (not certain about that name)Margaret Sheehan Mary McElligott, Phyllis Horgan, Kathleen Dunworth, ? Beasley, ? O'Keefe, Maeve Moloney, ?Murphy, Dympna Hillard.

Front Row: Nora Barry, Margaret Horgan, Eileen? Lynch, Noreen Mahoney, Geraldine Reidy (an american girl visiting Listowel), Patricia Hartnett,Marie Buckley, Terry Buckley and of course Sr. Dympa

I'm wondering if there is anyone else still around who remembers this.

Does anyone recognize herself, her mother or maybe her grandmother in the photo? I'd love to know where they all are now.

These are appearing on footpaths all over town.  They are covering the newly installed water meters.

This is our Millennium Arch in all its glory in 2009. I don't suppose it would be cost effective to rebuild it .  Another landmark gone!
