Sr. Geralda Meskill’s acquaintance with the Sisters of St. Francis began when her older sister, Sr. John Helene, entered the congregation. Sr. Geralda and her siblings enjoyed accompanying their parents to visit the convent in Mallow in County Cork. “The convent was familiar territory to me,” explained Sr. Geralda. She eventually joined the congregation as did her younger sister, Sr. Ellen Mary.
