Three Brave Women & the Story of Crosshaven Convent

In this special episode of the Nano Nagle podcast, we sat down with Sr. Margaret Coleman, who chats about her 47 years at  the Presentation Convent Crosshaven, Co. Cork.

As well as her own personal story she talks about the three brave sisters who went to Crosshaven to start a school in 1876, the love story that assisted them, and the many changes until the convent closed its doors on the 30th September, 2015.

She began as a boarding student in 1962 and joined the Presentation Order herself in Crosshaven immediately after, both teaching and looking after the boarding students at the school.

We hope you enjoy this conversation as much as we did!
