On the day we welcomed people of various ages and backgrounds, and even a small group from Birmingham Irish Association. The turn-out was good, given the rather inclement weather in the morning!
The tour was peppered with lots of questions and comments on the beauty of the convent, the interest provoked by it, and the story of Catherine McAuley the Irish woman. During the cup of tea at the end, the atmosphere was one of appreciation and appeals from some to be able to return.
Hopefully we can work with Sian and Legacy on more events in the future.
