ALMOST 350 people attended a function at the Celtic Ross Hotel last Sunday to honour the Sisters of Mercy.

The five nuns, Sr Regina, Sr Bernadette, St Valerie, Sr Angela and Sr Redempta – who left their home in the Convent in Rosscarbery on Wednesday, September 30th – were moved by the number of people who turned up. 

The event was marked by a sit down meal and, in a number of after dinner speeches, many people paid tribute to the Sisters of Mercy who did so much for the community, and four young Mercy Leaders also addressed the gathering.
