THIS Friday evening’s “Nationwide” programme on RTE 1 television will feature a fascinating segment on the creation of the new Reconciliation Window in St. John’s Catholic Church in Tralee.

The documentary is produced and directed by Niall Martin of RTE and will be shown at 7pm.

The widow project was first conceived as a Tralee 800 project and took five years to bring to completion.

The window was executed by the prominent stained glass artist, Tom Denny, a member of the Dennys of Tralee Castle – the family who played a leading role in the history of Tralee from the 17th to the 19th century.

The project was a joint undertaking by the Catholic and Church of Ireland communities in Tralee and the extended Denny family.

It was the first window to be installed in St. John’s in sixty years. The new window has three lights or panels featuring Gospel stories focussing on reconciliation including “The Prodigal Son” and scenes from Tralee’s history and landscape.

It was unveiled by the Bishop of Kerry, Dr. Ray Browne, and Dr. Kenneth Kearon, Church of Ireland Bishop of Limerick, Killaloe & Ardfert, on October 27th last.
