Storyboard Text

  • Nano Nagle was born in 1718 in Ballygriffin, near Mallow Co. Cork. She lived in a large home with her family of two brothers and four sisters. 
  • One morning, in Paris, at half past five, Nano was returning from a ball and looked towards the church. She saw a group of poor people shivering in the col, waiting for the early morning mass to start.
  • One day when Nano came back to Ireland, Nano returned to find that her sister, Ann, had cut up a roll of expensive material that Nano herself had brought from Paris. She was even farther amazed to discover that Ann had cut this material to make clothes for the poor.
  • Nano stole from hovel to hovel every day to gather the most needy children she could find to teach them and by night she provided the poor with the necessities of life. As a result of her good deeds, she became lovingly known as the Lady of the Lanturn.
