Harry Clarke is an internationally renowned Irish stained-glass artist. His magnificent windows in St Joseph’s Church, Terenure, highlight his unique style and skilled craftsmanship. He founded the Harry Clarke Studio in 1930 and the works of his successors are also on display in the church. They carried on his legacy and ensured that an indigenous Irish industry outshone the more bland stained glass that was prevalent at the time. This books outlines the background to these stained-glass windows and the church itself offers a one-of-a-kind opportunity to see this progression – and Harry Clarke’s legacy.
