In this section of our website, you will find a short entry about the life of each of our Sisters who has been called by God to embark on her eternal life. No doubt you will find inspiration in reading how each one responded to her calling while on earth. We pray to them to help us on our journey.

If you knew one or more of these Sisters personally, or are connected through family ties, or simply like what you read, please contact us and tell us what you would like to add to that entry.

"The death of those can never leave us free from grief whose friendship during life was a solace and delight." Saint Augustine, City of God.

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.
