Elizabeth Walsh of Leitrim East, Newtownsandes (Moyvane), Co. Kerry joined the the Sisters of the Incarnate Word, becoming Sr. Ida. Sr. Ida was born in 1917 to Mollie Hanrahan and Mossie Walsh and was a granddaughter of John Hanrahan and Margaret Cunningham. She was a niece of Fr. Tim Hanrahan and Nellie Hanrahan of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, pictured in earlier photos.

Sr. Ida worked in Galveston, Texas and in Salt Lake City, Utah before returning to Ireland in 1969 to work in her order's House of Studies in Dartry in Dublin. She subsequently returned to the United States to work in Texas.

When Sr. Ida visited the family home in Leitrim East in 1969, following her return to Ireland from Salt Lake City, she met her brother Fr. Joe whom she hadn't seen in 34 years due to her being in the States and Joe living in the Far East.

Sr. Ida died in Texas in 2006.
