Assumpta, 03/12/1950 – 30/12/2002

While walking along the path in Drake’s Pool and enjoying the sunset we came across this plaque in the ground next to a bench.

“You are the wind upon my face.
You inspired me with your grace.
You are the wind upon my back.
You keep telling me do not look back.
As I walk among the trees.
I can feel your gentle breeze.
Your loving smile and tender care.
I cherish and take with me everywhere
3rd Dec 1950 – 30th Dec. 2002”

    It’s a nice piece of writing, sweet without being sickly.

    Thank you. When I saw it I became sad, because it’s in a beautiful location just down river from Cork Harbour. I thought that perhaps Assumpta may have taken her life there, but I’ll probably never know.
    I hope it’s in memory of a woman who died before her time in one of her favourite places.
