Papers of Bom Sucesso Dominican Convent, Lisbon

    The Convent of Our Lady of Bom Sucesso was founded in 1639 for Irish women and girls who were eager to live a religious life in Ireland, but were unable to do so due to the restrictive laws against Catholics. Dona Iria de Brito, a wealthy Portuguese countess, donated her house and property for the use of the nuns who could live a monastic life in the house. The Irish nuns lived in the community until August 2016.
