Provenance: Family of Kevin Barry; Thence by descent Literature: Irish Arts Review, Volume 11, 1995, p. 208, King, Richard (Kevin Barry Memorial Window), by Ruth Sheehy In the years following his execution, Kevin Barry’s fellow UCD students raised funds for the creation of a memorial window, but it was only when Richard O’Rahilly, married to Kevin Barry’s sister, was elected to the UCD Governing Body in 1932 that the window was finally commissioned. Designed and worked in double-glazed glass by Richard King at the Harry Clarke stained glass studios in Dublin, the memorial window was unveiled in Earlsfort Terrace in 1934 by the then President of Ireland, Eamonn de Valera. Before Ireland achieved independence, Eamonn De Valera was one of the leaders in the 1916 Easter Uprising, and president of Sinn Fein (1917 to 1926). The panels of the window read as follows: Cúchulainn and Queen Medb; The Battle of Clontarf; Red Hugh O’ Donnell; Patrick Sarsfield; Lord Edward Fitzgerald &Wolfe Tone; Robert Emmet & The 1798 Rebellion; The Easter Rising of 1916 and the arrest and subsequent interrogation of Kevin Barry in September 1920. The drawing here depicts Patrick Sarsfield. The Kevin Barry Memorial Window was removed from its original location in Earlsfort Terrace in 2010 and is now located in The Charles Institute. Funded largely by the City of Dublin Skin and Cancer Hospital Charity (Hume Street Trust), this is the first national institute devoted to dermatology in Ireland and links the UCD health sciences teaching centre with the Conway Institute for biomedical research. €3,000-€4,000 (£2,590-£3,450 approx.)
