Explore the heritage and magnificent artwork of our Sister M. Concepta Lynch OP at the Dominican Oratory of the Sacred Heart, Library Road, Dún Laoghaire. The Oratory was built during 1919 to mark the end of WWI and to commemorate the many local Irishmen who had fought and died on the Western Front. It was hand-painted by Sister M. Concepta Lynch OP a member of the Dún Laoghaire community between the years 1920-36. The stunning result is a highly-regarded masterpiece of the Gaelic Revival style. The windows were provided by the Harry Clarke Studio in Dublin.
