President Higgins Congratulates Sr Bernadette Sweeney on her Golden Jubilee
The very warm message received from the President’s office reads;
‘Sabina and I would like to send our best wishes to Sr. Bernadette Sweeney on the occasion of her Golden Jubilee.
Amongst her many acts of generosity was the establishment, with Dr. Joanna Crooks of the Music Project in St. Agnes’ School in Crumlin in 2006. During the eleven years since its establishment, the project has introduced hundreds of young people to the goys of music, greatly enriching their lives, and adding so much to the cultural dimension of the school and it’s surrounding community.
I know that Sr. Bernadette is held in great affection by the many people who have known her across the years as a supportive teacher, a thoughtful mentor and a treasured friend. We whish her and enjoyable celebration and every peace and happiness for the future.
Michael D Higgins

The people who’s lives have indeed been touched so positively by Sr. Bernadette’s never failing warmth, energy and generosity fully share the President’s appreciation and gratitude.
