Bridie Murphy grew up in Church Street, Abbeyfeale in West Limerick. She has very happy memories of the people and places in the town, and her own days in the local school, after which she joined the Presentation Sisters on September 7 1935, at Presentation Convent in Turners Cross, where she was to spend the rest of her life. She speaks about the Order, and the rules and regulations set down for the nuns. In 1939, she was afforded the opportunity to pursue a teaching career and studied at University College Cork (UCC). It is interesting to hear her speak about how protected the nuns were in those days. In 1969 she won a scholarship, which gave her the opportunity to go to Rome. She describes the difficulties she encountered during her time in trying to get permission from the Reverend Mother to further her teaching career. Sr Berchman has many anecdotes and stories about the years she spent in South Presentation Convent. She ended the recording by singing a lovely song which she learned from her brother Tim, who was a priest in Rome.

Brother Benildus was greatly involved with many of the schools in the County of Cork. He worked in Greenmount School, St Joseph’s School, Presentation Brothers in Cork, and retired back to Turner’s Cross, where he had begun his teaching career. This recording provides glimpses of many of his experiences in each of these places. He describes the ways in which the Presentation Brothers created opportunities for students to get employment after leaving school. He also speaks about the way of life of a Presentation Brother – the commitments involved, their role in life and also his observations on education as he experienced it over the last half-century.

In this recording Brother Benildus recalls the huge influence held by the Presentation Brothers, and his own input into organising groups of Brothers on holiday trips abroad in the early seventies. He recalls their very first trip, a camping trip to Scotland, and he speaks at great length about their experiences abroad. 1994 was the 150th anniversary of the death of their founder, Brother Ignatius Rice, and Brother Benildus’s memorable trip to the Vatican on that occasion is described. He discusses the major role that the Presentation Brothers have played in the past in Irish education, and the role that they would hope to play into the future.

Moyvane in North Kerry is the homeplace of Pat Ahern, who was born into a farming family there. He was educated initially in Listowel, then at St Brendan’s College Killarney and he studied for the priesthood at Maynooth. He discusses his early introduction to an appreciation of music, when he joined the choir at Maynooth. His first appointment as a priest was to Tralee, and shortly afterwards the Bishop of Kerry made a decision to send the young priest to UCC to study for a B.Mus. degree under Professor Fleischmann, who was a great inspiration to the young man. He discusses his early involvement with the performing arts in Tralee, and the setting up of Siamsa Tíre, of which he became director. Music and dance are his passions and he describes the roots of these passions and their great importance in his life and career. He is now retired from the directorship of Siamsa Tíre and is content that the present generation is continuing to nurture the performing arts in Kerry.

Churchtown South in east Cork is the birthplace of Seán Terry, who from his earliest years, had a great interest in music. He was ordained at Maynooth, and spent some time ministering in Wales, before his appointment to St Colman’s College, Fermoy, in 1962. He was to spend four consecutive summers studying the teaching of music for schools, which included composition, conducting, listening and identification, a method he used in his music classes on his return to St Colman’s. He discusses his appointment to teach at UCC by Prof. Fleischmann and the chairmanship of the advisory board set up to advise the Roman Catholic bishops on church music after Vatican II. In 1977 he retired from St Colman’s and is now enjoying his quieter days in Aghada.

Miriam Buckley grew up in Waterford, and studied music under Aloys Fleischmann at UCC, graduating with a B.Mus. She discusses her days at UCC, and the influence of her teacher Seán Ó Riada. She recalls her contemporaries on the course, people such as Micheál Ó Súilleabháin and Richard Goodison. She very much enjoyed playing the viola in the Fleischmann Orchestra and she also taught piano part time at the School of Music. She was involved in a music group, Pangur Bán, in the early 1970s, which later became known as ‘The Tribal Gathering’, to the dismay of Prof. Fleischmann! While studying for her Masters in 1975, she made the decision to enter the Poor Clare Sisters rather than complete her studies, and she discusses the reasons for this huge decision.
