News that a circular stained glass window will be saved at the former home of Church Decorators, Earley and Co Studios which is located on Camden Street, Dublin 2, has been welcomed by Sinn Féin Cllr Greg Kelly.

Cllr Kelly had raised the fact that the building that contains the window has been subject to planning permission by JD Wetherspoon, but there was no mention of the window in the submission.

Cllr Kelly said: 

"The stained glass window is over 150 years old and remains part of the building. I called on Dublin City Council to contact JD Wetherspoon to see what there intentions were, once work on the building started. 

“It great to get confirmation that as part of the planning permission, the pub has to resubmit more details, and as part of this there will be a commitment that the stained glass window forms a big part of the plan.

"The window was designed and built by Thomas and John Earley has been there since Earley and Co Studios opened in that particular premises in 1852. It is great to think that it could be there for 150 more years.”
