An Túr Gloine – Stained Glass Windows Created In Tipperary.

Ms Maura Barrett, (Cashel Library) Reports:-

On Friday morning next, May 26th, at 11:00am sharp in Cashel Library, Ms Stephanie Woods will discuss the women artists of ‘An Túr Gloine (Irish for “The Glass Tower”) latter a Stained Glass Studio, focusing on the works of Sarah Purser, Evie Hone and Catherine O’Brien and the windows they created in Tipperary.

An Túr Gloine was first conceived of in late 1901 and finally established in January 1903 at No. 24 Pembroke Street, Dublin, Ireland.

The aforementioned Sarah Purser hoped to provide an alternative to the commercial stained glass imported from England and Germany, for Irish churches and other architectural projects.
Thus, the original impetus for this project, was spurred on by the building of a Roman Catholic Cathedral in Loughrea, Co. Galway; drawing on the artistic tradition of Celtic manuscript illumination.
