The Arts Council has expressed its regret at the passing of artist and Aosdana member Helen Moloney. Ms. Moloney died on Sunday 6 March 2011.
Born in Dublin in 1926, she studied painting at the National College of Art & Design in Dublin and at La Grande Chaumiere in Paris. She worked with Patrick Pollen at the Túr Gloine stained glass studio, and established her own studio in 1965. Her stained glass is in dozens of churches across Ireland and England, and she had also designed crosses, doors, altar panels and tapestries. She represented Ireland at the Salzburg Biennale, and had won numerous exhibition prizes.
