Ancient Tradition New World

Ancient Tradition – New World tells the story of eight pioneer Dominican women, who in 1867 made the journey from Cabra (Dun Laoghaire) Ireland to Australia, and those that came after them. Their efforts are placed in the context of their times – a growing Catholic community challenged by the establishment to provide a network of Catholic education accessible to all.
