Additional information 

FOXFORD was founded in 1892 by an Irish nun, called Mother Agnes Morrogh-Bernard. Mother Agnes came to the town of Foxford with the hope of bringing ‘Brighter Homes, Better Work and Greater Happiness’ to the locality and her vision of possibility, tenacity and bravery weaves an intriguing tale through the decades that followed.
