Saints Peter & Paul, Balbriggan, Co. Dublin.   Number of Lights 2 ,  Window: 2 :  14 Date 1924

The Balbriggan church contains two of Harry Clarke’s windows that are considered to be among his finest: the visitation and the widow’s son. The original commission for the windows came from Canon Byrne of Balbriggan.

The windows were finally erected later in 1924 at a cost of £116 (Bowe: 1994). Both windows were designed and executed by Harry Clarke.
