Three Irish nuns had their pensions restored after intervention by the Ombudsman

Tyndall's office used the European Ombudsman Network to solve the matter.


Tyndall's office used the European Ombudsman Network to solve the matter.

The sisters’ payments stopped after they returned from Portugal to live in Ireland.

After their return, the nuns said they needed their pensions paid to their religious congregation rather than their personal bank accounts, which they had closed.

The nuns had been without pension payments for over six months when they raised the matter with the office.

Tyndall’s office then used the European Ombudsman Network to solve the matter.

The Irish Ombudsman then contacted the Portuguese Ombudsman who, in turn, contacted the Portuguese pension authorities.
