Ada Allingham Room

To mark 15 years in Glasnevin, the Holy Faith sisters decided to refurbish a room which had been the first chapel in the oldest part of the convent building and in which the first sisters made vows.

Nine sisters made their vows in the room and their names are memorialised in the beautiful wall hanging made by Daiva Stasiukynaite, an artist from Lithuania who lives is Limerick.

Daiva gives her interpretation of the work:

‘The lower part of the work represents the ground of everyday life with all its responsibilities and sacrifices’. The next part upwards remembers the sisters who took their vows. ‘Their names are embroidered in white with a simple line of red and gold above the line. The section of blue represents the sky and heavenly love. Clean lines of gold and red represent joy, celebration and the presence of God.
