THOMAND ARCHAELOGICAL AND HISTORICAL SOCIETY

Stained Glass is the topic of the next lecture to the Thomond Archaeological and Historical Society. In the early twentieth century Harry Clarke studios produced some of the best examples of this craft – and eventually two artists who were trained there founded their own business with equal talent and success but are perhaps less well known. Johnny Murphy and Des Devitt with Johnny’s wife Róisín Dowd Murphy went on to create some of the most stunning stained glass ever seen in Ireland. Until their deaths in 2006 they produced hundreds of the most avant-garde, radical and truly beautiful stained-glass windows in churches, public buildings and private homes. There are many examples of Murphy Devitt  work in both Limerick and Clare and Stained-Glass expert Dr Charlotte Murphy will discuss these in an illustrated presentation on Monday 24th Sept at 8.00pm in room T.1.17 Tara Building, Mary Immaculate College, South Circular Road, Limerick.

FUNDRAISING DANCE

I am hoping to raise the dust at the Longcourt Hotel in Newcastlewest on Friday 12 October . This is a fundraising dance to provide for the shop/cafe in Kilmeedy. Tickets will be on sale shortly at a very low cost of €10. There will also be a Raffle on door ticket for numerous prizes. Top class music and singing from Rock me Mama to the slosh!!
