He complimented the author for the structure, primary sources and visual representations in the book and recommended it as a worthy chronicle to all assembled.

150 Years of Stewarts Care - The Pathway to the Present.

This book by Pat O’Donohoe, traces the history and evolution of Stewarts Care prior to it’s beginning in 1869 to the present day. It records the effort and commitment of the founders of the organisation who saw it’s first objective to be the education and training of persons with an intellectual disability. In time this intent would broaden to include the long term care of this group in our society. Many challenges that presented to that first management committee were overcome and the organisation was sustained for almost 90 of those years through the voluntary contributions of the Irish people. It also serves as a testament to a great number of people who contributed to that ongoing progress and development.
