Just over a year since the boarding school shut its doors, ‘A Bower For Sisters’ is being launched, giving an intimate look at the now historical Our Lady’s Bower Boarding School and Convent.
Former pupil and Tullamore native Aisling O' Rourke said she decided to publish this book to provide an insight into life at the Boarding School:
“In ‘A Bower For Sisters’, I aim to pay testament to a part of our history which is now gone, to pay tribute to the work of the La Sainte Union sisters, and in some small way ensure Our Lady’s Bower Boarding School is not forgotten in the years to come.”
'A Bower for Sisters' by Aisling O' Rourke will be launched by former Bower girl and well known author, adventurer and presenter Teena Gates, in The Library Project, Temple Bar, Dublin, on the 9th of December at 6pm. Details of the launch are available on www.abowerforsisters.com and here.
‘A Bower For Sisters’ was designed and self-published in collaboration with Read That Image and is published in an edition of 500 hand-bound copies.
