Mary Murphy recently retired as Nurse Manager of Mount Sion Community Residence, Tipperary.

To mark the occasion Mass was celebrated by Fr. Kennedy in Mount Sion and was attended by the Residents, Staff and Friends of Mount Sion along with members of Mary’s family, including her husband, Jack, sons, daughters and her parents, Richard and Catherine Condon.

Many tributes were paid to Mary during the ceremony, and at the reception afterwards, for the great caring and kindness that she displayed towards the residents during her tenure at Mount Sion.

The respect in which Mary was held in Mount Sion by her work colleagues, residents and friends was very evident in the words of tribute that were spoken on the day and by the attendance of so many members of the extended community. A number of presentations were made to Mary including a very special presentation from the Residents of Mount Sion. We join with the Mount Sion Community in extending our very best wishes to Mary on her retirement and we wish her continued good health and happiness.
