A day spent with Sister Stan learning about her research work with homeless women in Dublin.

Sister Stanislaus Kennedy is a founder of the Focus Ireland charity which provides services for homeless people. This programme looked at a day in the life of Sr. Stan, her work with homeless women, the research she carried out and the Focus Point centre which was just recently opened in Eustace Street.


An Taoiseach Garret Fitzgerald launched the book ‘But Where Can I Go?: Homeless Women in Dublin’ by Sr. Stanislaus Kennedy – a study of homeless women in Ireland who tell their own stories of violence and rejection.

It enabled women to write their own stories. So there are several self portraits in the book.


Sister Stan's day ends in prayer and worship in the chapel of the convent in Stanhope Street in Dublin.

A Day in the Life of Sr Stanislaus Kennedy was first broadcast on 5 June 1985.
