You are very welcome to our website. We, the Poor Clare Sisters of College Road, Cork, are part of the Franciscan family, followers of St. Francis of Assisi, and we are so pleased that our Holy Father Pope Francis has taken the name of Francis! St. Francis inspired and guided St. Clare who founded our Order of Sisters in Italy in 1212. Our monastery here in Cork was founded in 1914.

As enclosed Sisters, dedicated to the contemplative life, we assure you of our prayers. May God bless and protect you this day.

We hope you enjoy our website, where you can read about St. Clare, St. Francis and St. Colette, about how Poor Clare life started in Cork, how we spend our day and more!

May the Lord bless you and keep you.

The Poor Clare Sisters

The Lord has loved you with an everlasting love.
Jer. 31:3
