I was placed in care in 1952 in Ennis I am trying to find what the name of the Convent was I might have been placed in. I was there for 4 years. I was born in Quilty and now live in England. I would appreciate if anyone can help me to trace this horrible past experience please.

School History
1950's and into the early 1970's, it is known that there were some changes and projects undertaken at the school and in the convent. In 1952, when 250 students returned to classes, they discovered that all the classrooms and hallways in the school had been treated to new acoustic tile ceilings and fresh coats of paint, with each room a different color. A new classroom was added in the building's basement, which required that decaying joists and the wood floor be replaced with a concrete base and tile cover. Fluorescent light fixtures had been installed throughout the building and new tiling had also been applied to the basement ceiling. Some new benches had been purchased and an office and lavatory had been installed for the sisters.
In order to expedite the school lunch system the kitchen was further modernized for greater convenience. Included in the program was installation of a garbage disposal unit, together with up-to-date cooking and refrigeration equipment.
