1st November 2019 was the 175th anniversary of the death of local heroine Anne Frances Caldbeck. As a token of remembrance of the pioneering educational work of Anne Frances and her mother Elizabeth who lived and taught in the village all those years ago, a bouquet of white roses was placed on their grave at Mount St Joseph’s cemetery at the Monastery Road, Clondalkin. Some other members of the Caldbeck family are also buried there.
