Visiting Nuns

“I remember coming in to the house one, one summers day […] there were visitors […] two nuns sitting in the house. They spoke to me as if they knew me, “ah […] here’s Clare now, you would like to come to school wouldn’t you Clare?” Well I didn’t know them, I didn’t know school, and my mother was saying, “she’s far too young”. […] ‘I was probably 3 going on 4, and they were keen to get me in, I suppose to make up numbers, I had heard later on they had been canvassing round the other houses too.”
