While at Baggot Street in Dublin earlier this month, Loreto Conroy RSM, Congregation Leader of the Sisters of Mercy North Sydney, was given a cup and saucer which belonged to Catherine McAuley, Foundress of the SIsters of Mercy. The cup and saucer, which is part of a set displayed in Baggot Street's International Room, was brought by Catherine from 'Coolock' where she had spent many years of her earlier life . The cup and saucer will be placed in the Sisters' 'Mission and Heritage Centre'.
