Cecilia Costelloe from Cork and Dublin was a well-qualified and experienced nurse when she entered on October 3rd 1957. She had been Matron in Carmelite Boys' College in Terenure, and they much regretted her leaving.

Apart from Formation years, her seventeen years in MMM were mainly dedicated to our sick and infirm as she took on the role of Infirmarian in Beechgrove. She also served as Home Sister in the Nurses' Home attached to the I.M.T.H.

She was a little bit of a disciplinarian (no doubt from her experience with the boys in the College) but also a very kind and conscientious lady too.

She nursed at Mt. Elgon in Kitale, Kenya, from 1963-1965, returning to Ireland because of ill health.

After her recovery, she served as Sister in Charge of the MMM community in the Apostolic Nunciature in Dublin. She died in Drogheda at the age of 73 years and is buried there.
