Sr. Marguerite O’Beirne ’70, vice president of mission and ministry at Neumann University, was recently honored by St. Ronan’s National School in Cloonloo, Ireland. O’Beirne, a Cloonloo native, was selected as an ambassador for her former school.

 

She began her formal education at Cloonloo NS and has described it as “a school that has been a vital part of the community and that has helped to shape the lives of so many down through the years.” She agreed to become an ambassador for Cloonloo NS because she believes “education is an effort of a community to recreate itself with the rise of each new generation and to perpetuate itself in historic time.”

 

O’Beirne returned to Ireland to participate in the ceremony. Held July 1, the celebration day began with a tree planting, followed by mass and the unveiling of a commemorative plaque and refreshments. Members of the local community and past pupils of the school came out to celebrate.

 

O’Beirne has been named to the Irish Education 100 by the Irish Voice in 2010 and 2011. She is a member of the class of 1970 and has been vice president of mission and ministry at Neumann since 1997. Before coming to Neumann she served as principal of McCorristin Catholic High School in Hamilton, NJ from 1983-1995.
