Today we celebrated Presentation Day in honour of the Presentation Sisters and Nano Nagle who founded the order. This is an extra special year as there was an announcement from Rome recently that the Pope has placed  Nano Nagle one step nearer to being made a Saint.


This is a statue of Nano Nagle at her birth place in Ballygriffin near Mallow. She is holding a lamp in her hand as she became known as ‘The Lady With the Lamp,’ and she has children with her as she spent so much of her life teaching the poorest children in Cork City.
