The Sacred Heart Review, Volume 32, Number 9, 27 August 1904
The reception of Mrs. John Redmond’s niece, Miss Dora Howard, at the Irish Benedictine Abbey of Ypres, in Belgium, conjures up memories of that time- honoured convent, founded in 1612, which, eighty years later, proved a peaceful home for many of Ireland’s fair daughters, whether nuns or boarders. Indeed, from 1692 to 1840 the abbey was almost wholly Irish, and it was ruled by a long line of Irish abbesses from 1780 to 1840  In the “Calendar of the Stuart Papers,” recently issued by the Historical MSS. Commission, there are numerous allusions to the Abbey of Ypres. Queen Mary writes on July 31, 1697, thanking the Bishop of Ypres for his kindness to the Lady Abbess (Madame Caryll  , of the nuns of Dunkirk, and the Irish Benedictine Nuns of Ypres. Again, on June I9th 1700, she went to the Bishop, undertaking to make suitable endowment for four Irish nuns at Ypres, “as a favor to those poor ladies, banished and persecuted on account of their religion, and to whom is now left the only establishment that they have.” In September, 1701, she recommended Father O’Donnell as chaplain to the Irish nuns of Ypres, and on September ’29, 1705, recommended Miss Mary Brigid Creagh, a niece of the Archbishop of Dublin, as a novice. Dame Creagh, as is recorded in the necrology of Ypres, spent sixty-two years as a nun, and died at the age of eighty-three, on May 29, I768 ?. It is remarkable that after the death of Dame Mary Benedict Byrne, in 1840, no Irish Abbess was appointed, and in 1860 not a single Irish nun was amongst a Sisterhood once exclusively Irish. Since 1865 Irish nuns have again entered Ypres, but the Irish flags which adorned the convent chapel have long since disappeared. — Weekly Freeman.
