Harry Clarke, Ireland’s most famous stained glass Artist, was commissioned by the Irish Government to design a window for the International Labour Office in Geneva. It represents the Irish Literary Revival and portrays poems, plays and novels, chosen by Harry Clarke and WB Yeats. The final window was rejected by the government and never installed. This Presentation tells the story, with slides, commentary and readings. Marie, a member of U3A Belfast (University of the Third Age) asks: ‘How could such a wonderful work by one of Ireland’s greatest artists get hidden away for so many years?’.
