SANDFORD PARISH CHURCH [CHURCH OF IRELAND]

    SANDFORD PARISH CHURCH [CHURCH OF IRELAND]


    Over the last few days I have come across the name “Harry Clarke” a number of times.

    Sandford Parish Church was designed by Robert Newenham who lived at nearby Merton House. The land for the church was provided by George Baron Mountsandford. The original church opened in 1826 but was given a new façade, designed by architects, Lanyon, Lynn and Lanyon, when Sandford became a parish in its own right.


    The church has a remarkable stained glass Harry Clarke window dating back to 1921. Clarke worked on numerous stained-glass commissions for the Church of Ireland during the late 1910s and 1920s. These include his work for St Barrahane’s in Castletownsend, Co. Cork (1918, 1921, and 1926), Christ Church in Gorey, Co. Wicklow (1922), and St Patrick’s in Carnalway, Harristown, Co. Kildare (1921), as well as Holy Trinity in Killiney, Co. Dublin (1919), Eneriley and Kilbride Church near Arklow, Co. Wexford (1924), Sandford Parish Church in Ranelagh, Co. Dublin (1927) and St Brigid’s in Castleknock, also Co. Dublin (1928), all of which were located in the Dioceses of Dublin and Glendalough.
