In the early 1900’s Little Nellie of Holy God – Nelly Organ – whose mother had Portlaw connections, lived in William Street. This little girl died in a convent in Cork and the Bishop of Cork allowed Nellie to receive Communion and Confirmation at an early age. Pope Leo heard of Nellie’s faith and changed the age for children to receive Communion. She died in Cork in 1908.
