brian its a seniors dwelling place, i was home to see her one time and i rang the bell in there, (it had all been remodeled) and an english voice answered from the intercom on the door, i asked where she was as i wanted in, she was in england. i thought, things have sure changed lol.they had kept the old building and remodeled all around it.

Shortly before the area was rebuilt I took 18 photos of the area as I new that so many streets had no photo memories of them. The convent that you mention was Clonard House (photograph above) and belonged to The Kennedy family who owned what is now known as Conway Mill. The mill made uniforms for the soldiers  during the American cival war. The convent was used for saying mass in before The Church of the Most Holy Redeamer (Clonard) was built.  Google earth was not even heard of when the photos were taken.
