One Victorian and A Carrick Whalen’s Nine Modern Stained Glass Windows

The three of five-lights in the East Window which depict Christ preaching are late-nineteenth century but of a mid-nineteenth century style. We would like to think that they are copied from the work of Robert Scott Lauder (1803-1869), born in Silvermills – a stone’s throw from St Vincent’s.
