Official Launch of Nano Nagle Place, Cork



There was a wonderful sense of occasion at the official launch of Nano Nagle Place, Douglas Street, Cork, which took place on Monday 18 December 2017. Congregational Leader of the Presentation Sisters Union, Sr Mary Deane said “Today we celebrate the transformation that is Nano Nagle Place. Nano Nagle Place holds the vision and the dream that honours the past and yet is an expression of our living heritage.” The redevelopment of this 3.5 acre site has been a dream that was in the pipeline for almost 20 years, and the project was almost completely funded by the Congregation.  Sr Mary also expressed how apt the opening was as next year the Congregation will celebrate the Tercentenary of the birth of Nano Nagle.

Former President of Ireland, Dr Mary McAleese said that we ‘should be justifably proud of the founder of the Presentation Sisters, Nano Nagle whose pioneering work in setting up schools in Ireland and beyond had left a lasting legacy.” Dr McAleese paid tribute to all those involved in the transforming of the historic buildings during the regeneration project. 

MC for the opening was Ger Canning, former teacher at South Presentation secondary school, and a time of prayer and blessings was led by Bishops John Buckley (Cork and Ross), William Crean (Cloyne) and Paul Colton (Church of Ireland, Cloyne, Cork and Ross). 

The speakers were Lord Mayor of Cork, Cllr Tony Fitzgerald, former President of Ireland, Dr Mary McAleese, Congregational Leader of the Presentation Sisters Union, Sr Mary Deane and Chairman of the Nano Nagle Place Board, Jim Corr.
