A native of Castlemagner, Co. Cork, Eileen’s maiden surname was O’Brien. She had been married with a family and was widowed before entering MMM on 8 March 1968. Because of her age and maturity, an Indult was requested and granted, so she did not need to complete a second year of novitiate.

Sr. Eileen’s life and ministry in MMM was spent in Beechgrove, Drogheda and it was here that she died and was buried.

She is best remembered for her work on the garden in Beechgrove. She was responsible for the erection of the Stations of the Cross in the grove.

A daughter of Eileen’s, Sr. Doreen, a Canoness of St. Augustine, was well known to MMM in Uganda, where she worked.
