Saints Peter & Paul, Balbriggan, Co. Dublin

The Visitation (1924) & The Widow’s Son (1924)




NOTE:- (Other Panels at end of this page)

The Balbriggan church contains two of Harry Clarke’s windows that are considered to be among his finest: the visitation and the widow’s son. The original commission for the windows came from Canon Byrne of Balbriggan. The windows were finally erected later in 1924 at a cost of £116 (Bowe: 1994). Both windows were designed and executed by Harry Clarke.
