Chapel of the Novitiate of the Oblate Fathers of St. Mary Immaculate (Belcamp, Dublin)

church

Harry worked on the cartoons for Belcamp when he was recuperating after a bicycle accident in London in 1924 (Bowe: 1994). The saints to be depicted were chosen by Fr. OConnor. The cost of each window was 50, making a total of 600 (Connellan: Story of the Belcamp Chapel Windows).
The six two-light windows are located in the nave of St. Marys chapel in Belcamp. The blue floral borders on each of the windows were altered in the late 1950s. Each saint is set in a background of colourful floral and abstract design.
