The window is inscribed in old Irish script: Naomh Lorcan Ó Tuathail on the right border.

The second light depicts Saint Kevin. Saint Kevin is depicted as abbot of Glendalough in dark red robes embroidered with golden designs. The lower panel shows Saint Kevin praying before the cross in his cave at Glendalough. The window is inscribed in old Irish script: Naomh Caoimhghin on the right border.
