Stained Glass from Church of St Laurence O’Toole, Kilmacud, Dublin

Opened on December 14th 1969 by Flann O’Brien’s English teacher the Church of St Laurence O’Toole in Kilmacud is one of those very late twentieth century ecclesiastical spaces in Dublin which are oft-derided but I find personally quite congenial (another example is Newtownpark Avenue

There isn’t all that much stained glass, with a striking window above the entrance.

There are also two small images in a chapel of Perpetual Adoration which have a satisfyingly questing air:
