Moment in Time: Brigidine in Mountrath bi-centenary celebrations in 2009

Members of Camross CCE lead the re-enactment of the Brigidine Sisters arrival in Mountrath in 1809 during the Brigidine Mountrath Bi-Centenary celebrations in 2009. Picture: Alf Harvey.

We delve into our archives again this week where we’ve unearthed some brilliant pictures from 2009.

That year marked the 200th anniversary of the Brigidine order of nuns arriving to the town. And the students and teachers of the renowned Mountrath school turned on the style to celebrate the occasion.

Our man Alf Harvey was there to capture it all.
