US nuns on Irish mission

Irish Catholicism has seen many changes over the last two decades with child abuse scandals and falling vocations.
But now one town has seen the arrival of some New York-based nuns to replace an older Irish order.
Drogheda is an historic town in County Louth, at the mouth of the River Boyne.
Less than 100 metres from the river's south bank is a small house beside St Mary's Church - the home of the the Franciscan Sisters of the Renewal.
It is a place where there is lots of singing and prayer.


Coals to Newcastle, now Nuns to Ireland! :dance:
To do, is to be (Socrate)
To be, is to do (Sartre)
Do be do be do (Sinatra)
