225th Anniversary
of
Nano Nagle’s Death

(April 26, 1784 – 2009)


How often have we seen her passing
with steady composure
through the rigours of every season
to tend her little flock?

How often have we seen her
after a well spent day,
returning through the darkness of night,
dripping with rain, mingled in the bustling crowd-
moving thoughtfully along
by the faint glimmer of a wretched lantern,
withholding from herself the necessities of life
to administer the comforts of it to others….


— Dr. Coppinger 1794
