Stained Glass from St Molleran’s Church, Carrick-on-Suir

With its narrow streets, broad river spanned by and skyline dominated by spires and a town clock, there is a medieval feel to Carrick-On-Suir. St Molleran’s is built on the site of a 13th Century Franciscan Abbey. The current church is considerably more modern although traces of this medieval foundation remain.

The stained glass windows I found rather typical of many other Churches but the light at the time I visited (early afternoon in early Feb) gave them a luminous quality I fear I did not capture here. There were some pleasing details such as the water under the feet of Mary as she appeared to Bernadette.
