The very last window. Des Devitt & Roisin Murphy 74 and 81 years of age. All the Murphy family were involved, Reiltin, Sennan, Canara, as well as Des's wife Margaret & son Anthony. From firing, to assembly, to soldering, to black leading, to sealing. The final windows. The last collaboration of 50 years in Stained Glass.
Designed, crafted and fitted by Des Devitt. His last major personal commission.
Co Cork, Ireland
Artist: Michael Timlin. I remember this one so well ! One of my favourite buildings in Ireland and one of my favourite windows. It was a community project and the result was stunning. I remember so clearly the week we fitted the window with Des Devitt (Dad) Michael Timlin and, of course, Dermot & Mikey McLoughlin (who worked with MDS & with J.A. Devitt & Associate Studios for all of the 50 years) http://www.ballynacally.com/#
