A Sneak Preview of Mary of Mevagh
Mary was born and grew up in one of the most beautiful scenic parishes in Ireland. She received a calling in her early twenties to improve the health and well being of the mothers and children of the parish.
She travelled from Mulroy Pier to Glasgow where she trained as a midwife. She returned home and was appointed to her native parish as one of the first midwives in Ireland.
As she travelled mainly by foot she was a familiar sight. Everyone knew Mary Boyde and likewise she could greet every person by his for her first name. She uplifted the spirits of all those she nursed being sometimes absent from her home by weeks.
Lest she and others who cared for the people of the Parish of Mevagh in the first half of the last century be forgotton let’s remember them with love.Tags:
