Harry Clarke. Forever my favourite.

KillalaDiocese.org has the church listed with the year 1845. Don’t know if maybe the windows were renovated, or of these are indeed the originals. They look bright and modern. If they are originals, - all the more impressive.
Some beautiful figures by Harry Clarke. I’ve posted some of these before, but they bear repeating.
More spectacularly creepy stained glass by Harry Clarke! A detail of this window.
Last Saturday, I mentioned that I had found a statue to Saint Gobnait in Ireland that I loved. While researching it, I also found that the Honan Chapel in Cork features a stained glass window dedicated to Saint Gobnait. The window was designed by Harry Clarke, who was internationally known for his stained glass work and his dedication to the arts and crafts movement of Ireland. The window was crafted between 1915 and 1918, and reflects the shift between the Art Nouveau and Art Deco movements. I love the rich colors and the elongated form of the Saint. I hope I get to see this in person someday!
