In December 1922, the Reverend Gahan of Christ Church Gorey commissioned a twelve-light rose window representing the Apostles. It was designed by Harry Clarke and was made by the Studios (Bowe: (1994, p. 147). The window contains twelve decorative abstract panels, denoting the twelve apostles. The central panel is a decorative hexagon in green and turquoise. The predominating colours of the panels are deep crimson, blue, lilac, green and gold.
