Stained Glass from the Church of the Assumption, Ballingarry, Tipperary (Part 1)

The Church of the Assumption, Ballingarry has much beautiful glass; on these days of intense sun it is particularly worth visiting as some wonderful effects are created. I am dividing this post into two, firstly considering the more modern glass with themes related to the Crucifixion. I particularly liked this window with motifs of Pilate’s handwashing and Peter’s betrayal:20180728_174209929595124.jpg
As always in these posts, I lament the quality of my pictures, and find this one of a window with a cross of thorns and the robe (with dice) didn’t capture the wonderful effect of the light:

However, the robe with dice is worth a closer look. I wonder if there is any significance to the numbers displayed?

I am a tiny bit unsure of the motif on the right below. Is it Jacob’s ladder?
