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.
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/#
