The Redemptorists in Ireland 1851-2011
by Brendon McConvery CSsR
Published:29 June 2012
The author, who is himself a Redemptorist and teaching theologian, writes of the immense contribution the Redemptorists, both men and women, have made to Irish Catholic life. Founded by five Europeans in the eighteenth century, the order has been more than a century and a half in Ireland where they made their mark in particular after the Great Famine. They are still at work, not only in parish ministry but in the Northern Ireland peace process. They are also renowned for their work in foreign missions, in India, Brazil and beyond. This study of the order, which examines in detail its 160 years’ work in Ireland, is well-researched, comprehensive, and enlightening.
