The Stained Glass Windows of Whitefriar Street

Due to the popularity of the various shrines in Whitefriar Street, including St. Valentine and St. Jude, one aspect that is often overlooked is the beautiful collection of stained glass windows in the church, some of which are nearly 180 years old. Some of the most beautiful are the ones depicting scenes from the life of Our Lady (the Rosary Windows) and the ones depicting The Process and Proclamation of the Dogma of the Immaculate Conception; all of which were restored in the 1990s. The Immaculate Conception windows were originally crafted by Meyer of Germany, however all the craftsmen were from Dublin. The Rosary windows are perhaps the oldest in the church, and were crafted by Dubliners in the work-rooms of Early's of Camden Street; one of them bears the date 1831. Apart from these spectacular sets, the church also contains many windows portraying Carmelite Saints, including the recently canonised St. Nuno, and St. Therese of Lisieux, among others. There are also several windows depicting the Blessed Virgin Mary, who is a central figure in Carmelite Spirituality.
