Glencairn Abbey Cards

Glencairn Christmas Cards 2019

A Sr Paula Kiersey Retrospective

To commemorate the tenth anniversary of the death of our Sr Paula Kiersey, we have chosen a selection of her Christmas cards for our 2019 catalogue. 

Sr Paula (Monica Kiersey) was born in Kilmacthomas, Co. Waterford, in 1917. She studied art in Dublin and on the Continent. In 1949 she joined the Cistercian community in Glencairn, and designed Christmas cards for sale by the Abbey from the 1950s through to about 1980. At this time she turned her attention to writing icons; she was a founder member and for many years President of the Association of Iconographers of Ireland.

  • I have purchased my cards every Christmas from the Sisters over the past few years. Sr Paula’s cards are so beautiful; my family and friends will be overjoyed to receive them. God rest Sr Paula. We are blessed that she left such a beautiful legacy.
