Pictured here are sisters Jane (Jennie) and Emma (Sr. Jerome) Gordon, born in 1871 and 1880 respectively in Kilgarriff, Fairymount, Co. Roscommon to Thomas Gordon (see earlier photo) and Ann Foley. They were aunts of Cormac Gordon, pictured in the previous photo.

Jennie, who never married, was a domestic science teacher and taught in Sligo for a number of years. She retired to Dublin and lived on Trees Road in Mount Merrion. Emma entered the convent, joining the Sisters of Charity order. She worked in Dublin at Linden Convalescant Home and St. Vincent's Hospital.

Jennie died in 1964 at the age of 93 and Sr. Jerome in 1968 aged 87.
