The Annunciation window is bordered by clear glass panels, decorated with colourful flowers. The background is decorated with hanging green trees and flowers. The top panels depict the Angel Gabriel, resplendent in robes of purple and magenta, decorated with tiny floral motifs and tied with a blue sash. The angel’s undergarment is a magnificent scarlet and white lace petticoat, and she wears a turquoise pair of ballet slippers. A dove is depicted beside the angel, denoting the Holy Spirit. Mary is depicted below the angel, gazing out at the viewer with an innocent expression. She is robed in a gown of deep blue, purple, and green and she wears a small blue headdress.
The right-hand light is the Coronation of the Virgin in Glory, completed by Harry Clarke in 1923. The top panels depict Christ attired in a blaze of colour, surrounded by saints in white robes. Mary, the crowned virgin, is resplendent in a dark blue cloak and an emerald and turquoise robe. She wears an elaborate crown that seems to emit flames of fire. Mary is surrounded by several female figures from the Old Testament. The lower panel depicts a distraught Adam and Eve. The window is signed at the left of the lower panel: Harry Clarke 1923.
