Sr Finbarr O’Connell

March 19 2006

… A note from Fr. Nicholas Motherway in Kenya saying his aunt Sr. Finbarr O’Connell (Kathy) has died in Cairns, Australia, at the age of 106. She came to live in Maiville Tce. when she was 1 year old. She told Fr. Nicholas that only the houses on the right side had been built at the time. His own family members were born and reared in No. 30. Was she the oldest Irish Missionary sister in the world?? May those who mourn be comforted.
