European Heritage Open Day

On Saturday morning the College was open for European Heritage Open Day. A steady stream of visitors took the opportunity to view the renowned ‘Harry Clarke’ stained glass windows in the College Chapel. Conservation work had been carried out on the windows as part of a project in 2004 with help from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

A bright morning enhanced the splendid colours and drew appreciative comments from onlookers:

‘I always wanted to see these windows particularly after seeing a television documentary on the work of Harry Clarke,’ said Samuel Johnson from north Antrim.

‘The atmosphere is so peaceful in here. I really enjoyed the talk and am delighted to have the opportunity to view such magnificent works of art,’ remarked Gordon McCloy from east Belfast.

It is hoped that next year the refurbished O’Laverty Library may also be part of this increasingly popular annual event.

Thanks are due to Mr Shane McBrien and prefects Tom Glackin, Hans Abraham, Conor Corry, Ruairi Crummey and Joshua Deazley who welcomed visitors, handed out brochures and acted as guides.
