A Light Undimmed tells the story of one of the oldest Irish convents in the world. Nuns, monks, and friars were expelled from their homes, their property and assets taken over by the State and given to favorites of the monarch.
Honor McCabe tells the story which began over 300 years ago in 1639. She captures the joy, the pain, and the suffering endured by both Irish and Portuguese.
Set against the background of the turmoil of political and religious strife in Ireland and the wider European context, this fascinating story is a record of human endeavor and fidelity that continues into the 21st century.
