Video: Belfast Telegraph Woman of the Year 2015 - Sister Olive Cooney, Woman of the Year in the Voluntary Sector

The Belfast Telegraph Woman of the Year in the Voluntary Sector is Sister Olive Cooney. Sister Cooney could be described as Northern Ireland’s answer to Mother Teresa! Olive is part of the Dominican Sisters on the Falls Road and has been nominated for her tireless work as a volunteer at The Welcome Organisation. Although she is in her mid-80s with arthritis she runs the laundry, washing all the clothes for the homeless. And she does it all, full of joy and with a wonderful smile.
