The Windows of the Carmelite Abbey and St Brendan’s Cathedral, Loughrea by Dr David Caron and Dr Christy Cunniffe. This video examines the architectural structure and distinctive features of key windows in Loughrea’s Carmelite Abbey, and then moves on to explore the connections between medieval windows – both visual and thematic – with a selection of the celebrated early 20th century An Túr Gloine stained glass windows in nearby St Brendan’s Cathedral. This project was developed by Galway County Council and Loughrea Medieval Festival Committee and funded by the Irish Walled Town Network, The Heritage Council and Galway County Council
