Bicentenary 2019: 18/19 - An Irish Star
Sarah Louisa Ryan - Lady Blomfield - was born in Tipperary in 1859 and was one of the first Irish people to become a Bahá'í. Dedicated throughout her life to the alleviation of suffering and the building of a safe and just society, in 1919 she assisted in the founding of the Save The Children Fund.
In her book, 'The Chosen Highway,' Lady Blomfield speaks about the day the Báb's Mission began - "What a day in the history of the world! The Báb, the Herald of Bahá'u'lláh, the Promised One, opened the new age of mankind."
