She was noted for her humanitarian endeavours, especially during the Famine. During a long widowhood in England she developed her artistic talent. Julian Walton is a retired secondary school teacher and librarian. He has worked at Waterford Heritage Genealogical Centre, Waterford Cathedral Library and the library of UCC.
