You are in · RoscreaOnline · Community · People Profiles

Sister Annie Delaney from Knock Roscrea, celebrated the golden jubilee of her vocation on November 9th last.

She entered the Irish Sisters Of Charity in Milltown, Co Dublin on November 9th, 1953.

Born at Derrygooney, Knock, seventy years ago, she was educated at Knock, National, School. Before she went in to religious life sister Annie was a noted camogie player with Roscrea and Tipperary, winning a couple of Tipperary Senior Championships in 1951 and 1952. She also won a Munster Senior Championship Medal.

After her profession she worked in various convents in Ireland. She has spent over 25 years in the UK. For the past 18 years she is based in Airdrie, Scotland at St Andrews Hospice, where she works at Pastoral Care in a local parish.

Over the years she developed an interest in art and took various classes in her spare time. She manages to do a lot of painting and she has had many exhibitions in which her work has been sold and the proceeds donated to the hospice.

Sister Annie celebrated her golden jubilee on the 9th of November at St Mary's Convent, Merrion, Dublin. This was followed with a fantastic evening at the Stilorgan Hotel. Later in the month another celebration took place. This celebration took place at St Andrews Hospice at Airdrie Scotland, where the Blue & Gold Flag of Tipperary was hoisted and a recording of Frank Patterson filled the air with memories of home, and of great days in time past. The flag as well as a number of blue and gold flowers were also placed on the altar at the ceremony in Scotland, adding great warmth and atmosphere to a truly unique and memorable occasion.

A much travelled lady, Sister Annie recently celebrated her 70th birthday, earlier this year, on St Patrick's day, at St. Vincent's hospital in Sydney. Annie has also travelled with her brother Denis (Donnie) to Hong Kong, Beijing, and the Great Wall Of China. Her many friends in Knock, especially her family, her classmates, her old friends in Roscrea and Tipperary Camogie Circles, her neighbours and all the Parish of Knock extend their congratulations to Sister Annie and wish her well in the years ahead.
