The above images are of two windows in the very attractive late 19th century Catholic church in Oulart, a small village just off the R741 on the way to Wexford. Unusually, they are signed and dated; a small legend on the bottom of one (see the fifth picture) identifies them as being by Earley & Co, a Dublin company, and made in 1942. Again, they show the heavy influence of Harry Clarke, not surprisingly as Clarke's studio kept running for years after his death (until 1973) and would probably have been in competition with Earley & Co. My apologies about the slight blurriness in some of the images; my camera is having slight problems with focusing! I quite like these windows; the colours are very strong, and even imitation Clarke can be preferable to a lot of the blandly "modern" glass (or the Victorian hackwork) which one encounters so often in churches.
