Sr Aileen McCarthy obituary: a visionary who pushed the limits of rehabilitation medicine

“Throughout her life she was an independent spirit with a healthy disregard for authority that occasionally got her into hot water with her superiors.”

“She represented Munster at hockey and swimming, and represented Ireland at golf in 1952, playing off scratch…. It was not unknown to see her climbing down the fire escape of the NRH to sneak off to play a round of golf on her Honda 50.”
