A Mass of Thanksgiving for the Life of Sr Phil Tiernan RSCJ was held at her parish church of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart on 25 July 2014.  Phil’s sister, Madeleine Wright and her daughter Josephine gave this eulogy.  Sr Mary Shanahan RSCJ’s eulogy for Sr Phil can be read here. M: My sister Phil loved mightily: she loved her family, the religious of the sacred heart, her church and her God. Throughout her life she gave herself unstintingly to each. The marriage of our parents, Mary Josephine Carroll of Kingaroy and James Bernard Tiernan of Murgon united two nineteenth century Irish immigrant families. Our cousins Bob Tiernan, Adrian and Rita Carroll, Bishop James
