Harry Clarke Stained-glass Windows 19 panels

A 96 page A4 full colour book Harry Clarke's Liquid Light was published in September 2013 ISBN no 978-0-9926480-1-5. This quickly sold out and a reprint will be available for April, 2014

St. Mary's Church, Ballinrobe, Co. Mayo has a wonderful collection and probably largest collection of Harry Clarke stained-glass windows together with some of his father Joshua Clarke's.


In 1924 the first of four double-light windows with their predellas were installed. The first two windows relate to events in the life of Christ, while the second pair relate to the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Monsignor D'Alton, who instigated the extension of the Church transepts, was pleased with those first two windows installed as was the local community. This resulted in the second pair of windows on the life of the Blessed Virgin Mary being installed. 

Clarke also designed the Early Irish Saints series which were installed in 1925. He was at the height of his career at this stage and we are fortunate to have copies of the original drawings for these windows signed by Clarke.

We are grateful to both the priests and members of the community whose generous donations allow us continued enjoyment of these wonderful windows, part of both Ballinrobe and Ireland's Heritage.
