In 1971 the Poor Clares in Ennis sent four sisters, along with four Australian sisters, to Aitape, Papua New Guinea, to establish a new foundation. On 26th July they are celebrating 50 years in the Country. Only four sisters are left of the original group, Clare sisters Regina Lewis from O’Brien’s Bridge and Clare Hanrahan from Crusheen, as well as 2 of the Australian sisters. We wish them every blessing as they continue their good work.
