Stained Glass from St Mary’s Church, Aughnacloy, Parish of Aghaloo and Carntell, Co. Tyrone

This parish has three Churches – St Mary’s Church Aughnacloy, St Joseph’s Church Caledon & St Brigid’s Church Killens. St Mary’s Church is located just beyond the main road of Aughnacloy in the direction of Omagh.

The stained glass here is pleasingly direct and could be called old-fashioned. On the day I visited it was extremely sunny which led to some wonderful effects, which I have not captured adequately here. As well as a crucifixion above the altar, most of the windows had a thread of themes from the Rosary or associated with Mary.

I liked this triptych of windows on the Visitation, St Joseph, and St Anne:

Here are my efforts at taking pictures of the windows above the altar:

Here is the other side of the altar, windows on the Annunciation, the Nativity, and presenting Our Lady (?possible crowned in Heaven):

I did make an effort to capture the light thrown by some of the windows on the floor. Here goes!
