The Honan Chapel was completed during a very erratic time in history, civil uprising in Ireland & WW1 was in full swing. The designers were searching for a new sense of Irish national identity on the threshold of political independence from Britain. Its expressed by looking back to the traditions of Celtic art and Hiberno-Romanesque architecture and blending them with contemporary tastes for Art Nouveau. Its a lovely small and unique place to visit and the stained glass hauntingly beautiful
