Mount Carmel nun Sr Brigid Mary O'Keeffe celebrated 75 years at the New Ross monastery on Thursday. On October 22, 1942, Brigid Mary from Waterford came to Mount Carmel Monastery to test her vocation to the Carmelite way of life.

Last Thursday, she celebrated the 75th anniversary of her taking the habit of a Carmelite Nun as Sr Margaret Therese.

A Mount Carmel monastery spokesperson said: 'To this day she is a full and active member of the community praying and interceding for all of us.

'Please join us in giving thanks to God for her fidelity and for the blessings derived from her constant prayers and simple way of life.

'Pray also that other women may be inspired to follow in her footsteps.'
