Caption

Bantry Bay, Co. Cork: The great hill-backed peninsulas of West Cork overlook many fine harbours and bays, of which Bantry Bay is perhaps the most noted. To the West the Slieve Miskish and Caha mountains shelter the bay, and many pleasant resorts dot the shores. the bay was twice entered by French fleets for the invasion of Ireland, first in 1689, and again to aid Wolfe Tone's Rebellion. As a fishing centre the bay is well known, and apart from the holiday angler, the Spanish trawlers add colour to the scene.

Excerpt from Message

Greetings from this green and misty Isle as J. Fr. K. called it. You know he hypnotized the Irish people. How are you all? Hope you are not being overworked with all those students around. It’s lovely being home again, and I miss seeing you all. We’ll meet in heaven I hope. Thanks for all your kindness Mother. F. Galvin says hello! Love from Sr. M. Columba
