SCENES from IRELAND


Eyeries (historically spelt Irees or Iries; Irish: Na hAoraí)[1] is a village and townland on the Beara Peninsula in County Cork, Ireland overlooking Coulagh Bay and the mouth of the Kenmare River in the south-west.
Eyeries is served by a Roman Catholic church, Saint Kentigern's.

Eyeries on the Beara Peninsula is one of West Cork's most colourful gems, set in an idyllic location on the west coast of Ireland. The brightly coloured houses look out across the stunning landscape of Coulagh Bay.

Eyeries is set on the Wild Atlantic Way with everything you need for a wonderful stay in such majestic landscape. Eyeries village boasts some of the most amazing views in Ireland and has great shops, welcoming bars, inviting cafés and plenty of places to stay. There are many other amenities including St. Kentigern's Church with its exceptional stained glass windows (see images on this page), the Post Office, a petrol station, the Sensory Garden, a playground and a host of beautiful relaxing spots both within the village and nearby.

St. Kentigern's RC Church, Eyeries

The very unassuming little building of St. Kentigern's RC Church hides a magnificent set of coloured glass windows telling the story of the world from prehistoric times and Ireland’s central part in that history. There are eleven windows in all: eight in the main body of church, two in the Sanctuary, and the last in the west wall, over the entrance doors. St. Kentigern's stained glass windows were commissioned in the 1980s, and each one is dedicated to the memory of a local person, and they were all paid for by friends and relatives of the dedicatees and the idea was partly motivated by a desire to ‘brighten up’ the interior of the formerly nondescript building. The stained glass artist was George Walsh who worked as an artist in Dublin and it is significant that his father, George S Walsh, worked in the studios of the famous stained glass Dublin artist, Harry Clarke.
 

Here are some of the words of George Walsh giving his explanation of these magnificent windows in St. Kentigern's Church, Eyeries

‘…The windows… begin with the elements sun, rain wind etc. The next depict fishing and the tradition of work on seas and rivers… Next, farming and husbandry, sowing seed etc. the final windows on this side show Saint Finbar – emigration, both going and returning old and new. The windows on the right side begin with the Dark Ages and pre-history to the next which remembers our Megalithic and Celtic past. Following on to the Christian period – Eucharist, Gospel Missionaries etc and finally to Resurrection… Sun and birds symbolise renewal and hope… The Sanctuary windows show Baptism, Water, Fish, Shell etc. Next is Mary in the form of Annunciation… the balcony windows are seen as we go out from the Church into the world in renewed spirit…’
