Past pupil Katriona Maguire (née Delahunt), born in 1923 in Wicklow, went to Mount Anville as a boarder in 1934. While in 1st year, her sister Mary was Head Girl. Whilst still in school (5th year, 1937) she met Conor Maguire. After school she became a  dedicated social worker and was depicted in the film My Left Foot as the  social worker to Christy Brown. She was instrumental in setting up Mount Anville Montessori with Geraldine Davy, Phyllis McKenzie and Maura Cooney. Katriona also played a pivotal role in setting up meals on wheels with Alice Finlay in  Dublin city.
