Presentation Convent, Clonmel school community – management, staff, retired staff, students and parents – extend profound sympathies to the Presentation Sisters community and relatives of Sr. Alphonsus who died over the Christmas period.
Sr. Alphonsus spent her whole teaching career in Presentation Clonmel and was manager of the school in the eighties.
Sr. Alphonsus taught English and Geography for more than 40 years in our school.
There is no doubt the number of students lives that she have touched through her hard work and dedication to her profession must number in the thousands. Teachers, students and retired staff members formed a guard of honour at the funeral. May she rest in peace.
