My mother was also at St Bernard's School for girls in Dundrum in the 1930's. I am trying to find out more information on when she was there.

I'm really not sure but it could be worth talking to someone at the Presentation Convent in Thurles. Co.Tipperary. I went to see some of the nuns about 20 years ago. There was also a priest, who was the chaplain at the convent in the early 70s, Father Seamus Rochford ,his sister lived in Thurles. I did my Leaving cert in Thurles and left in 1973. They must have records somewhere, in Thurles or Cashel.

Thanks for getting back to me. I'm just doing some research for a lady that was there in the 50's. I'll give them a call & see what I can find out.
