Vianney Care began through our family tree starting with Sister Vianney

"An inspiration to what people should aspire to be, making a difference for the better."

Bridget Fox was born on August 15th 1911, daughter of Robert and Bridget Fox, sister to Paddy, David and Eileen Fox. Bridget was born at Cullane South (Collán Theas) which is an Electoral Division of Cullane, in the Civil Parish of Ballylanders, Co. Limerick.

She attended Knockadea National School and then Kilfinnane Secondary School (Co. Limerick) before obtaining an Honour’s Degree at University College Cork. Bridget started her teaching career in Rathdrum Secondary School in Co. Wicklow at the age of

20. Two years later she joined The Mercy Order of Nuns in Arklow, Co. Wicklow in 1933, taking the name Sr. M Vianney Fox, after Saint John Vianney. There she taught Irish and Mathematics to secondary school girls.

Sister Vianney took particular interest in working with the poor and the disadvantaged in Arklow and the surrounding areas. She continued to work with the poor and disadvantaged right until her death on the 16th of December 1986.

Sister Vianney was an inspiration to people around her doing all she could to help people and try to make this world a better place, which is what inspired this company to come fruition. Sister Vianney’s name has been passed from generation to generation to help people remember and encourage people to help the disadvantaged, helping make the world a better place.
