The Procession

Eileen recalls walking in the Church procession with her sisters.

We all walked in the procession. NellieĀ had a wreath; she must have been about 13 then. I didn’t have one. I was five, Frances was two. We started off from St Patrick’s and we walked up Hill Street and we walked through Prince William Street, down Warwick Street further down by the docks. Everywhere was decorated all down there. Our dresses were home-made: a lady used to live next door to us, she made them.
