Description

Through a series of images and words we get a rare insight into the daily life of the Sisters of St Mary’s Abbey in Glencairn, County Waterford. Nestled in the rich heartland of Waterford, they live out their lives through work and prayer. There is a mysticism and rhythm to their daily life, which is intertwined with the seasons of nature and liturgies of the year. Their lives are a true, living, monastic journey fulfilling the motto of St Benedict ora et labora.

A Year in the Life: Glencairn Abbey is a fundraiser for St Mary’s Abbey building project. Founded in 1932 St Mary’s Abbey, Glencairn, is the only Cistercian monastery for women in Ireland since the Reformation.

Valerie O’Sullivan is a photographer and media provider, based in Killarney. She covers a wide range of events in the Public Relations, Press, Tourism and Outdoor Sectors. A winner of many national awards in the Press Photographs Association of Ireland competition.
