Documenting our Heritage

The Good Shepherd Magdalen Convent

Sundays Well, Cork.

CONVENT EAST WING

Red, White and Blue.

Now in the East wing of the convent we find an amazingly colourful floor.

Grand Staircase

The central staircase shows peeling layers of poppy design wallpaper.

Wash Room

The floor is covered with broken glass and debris. Some unrecognisable machine lies abandoned to the right of the photograph.

The S Corridor

The East wing is connected to the central hall by an S shaped corridor.

Crushing Darkness

Art Remains

Forgotten Shadows

Now moving up to the second floor of the East wing. The floor is littered with debris. Layers of wallpaper reveal the Sisters colourful taste. A dumb waiter lies broken - it used to connect to the kitchen room below.

Let the light in

Bath Tubs

Pigeon Roost

Top floor of the East wing, the floor is totally covered with pigeon litter, the floor boards rotten through in many areas.

We tread carefully.
