St. Patrick’s Church, Donabate

St. Patrick’s Church, Donabate
Described as one of the most ornate churches in Ireland, the 1903 church was built in the Gothic style using Portmarnock redbrick. Designed by Architect George O’Connor it is roofed with red tiles and has an ornate rose window and high altar of Carrara marble with carved panels from the life of St Patrick. The church features a stained-glass two light window “Suffer little Children,” designed by Harry Clarke in 1925. With surrounds of foliage, sky and mountain, the left light depicts St Joseph with three women one of whom is holding a baby and the right light depicts Jesus holding a baby on His knee. The lower panels are illustrated with the Holy Family’s flight into Egypt and the crucifixion of Jesus and the two thieves. The Men’s Sodality of the day collected £100 to pay for the window.
