It’s fitting that campaign group remember Anne

By Brendan Grehan

LAST Friday, November 1, was the 175th anniversary of the death of Clondalkin woman Anne Frances Caldbeck, who bequeathed the funds which helped build Clondalkin Convent.

To mark the occasion, members of the Save Clondalkin Convent Campaign laid a bouquet of white roses on her grave at Mount St Joseph’s Cemetery on the Monastery Road.

They were remembering Anne Frances Caldbeck and her mother Elizabeth (who died four years before her) for their pioneering educational work in Clondalkin village.

Some of the other members of the Caldbeck family are also buried in the cemetery.

Monica McGill from the campaign told The Echo: “We placed some flowers on her grave at Mount St Joseph’s on the Monastery Road, to mark the occasion.

It is fitting we should remember the pioneering educational and relief work of these two women in our village.”
