  • I'm waiting on a reply from the Good Shepherd Sisters.  A few weeks ago I attempted to visit the grave of Little Nellie of Holy God but was informed it wasn't possible. I spoke to a gentleman at the door who informed me as far as he is aware it is not possible to visit the grave. The building was sold to developers. It's all boarded up.

    A video below shows what became of the convent and Magdalene.

    Built in 1881, the Good Shepherd Convent was the site of an orphanage and a Magdalene Laundry until the late 1970s.

    The three main buildings - a home, convent, and orphanage have been in a derelict condition since a serious fire in 2003. The laundry building was among a number of buildings that were destroyed in that fire.

    The Good Shepherd Convent site was sold to developers in 2005. In 2006 it was expected that the average price of a two-bedroom apartment in the development would be Euro 450,000.

    In May 2010 the Good Shepherd Convent became another casualty of the collapsing Irish property bubble; the undeveloped site was seized by Ulster Bank.
