The stained-glass window shown above is on the stairs in An Cultúrlann. it was designed in conjunction with the Windsor Women’s group (Ionad na mBan, Windsor) to commemorate the fact that the place was formerly a Presbyterian church (1896-1982 Eaglais Preispitéireach, Broadway).  The broken white lines which form the cross also stand for road markings. The glass also features the sun, a burning bush, a rainbow, and a Celtic shield. Unveiled June 22nd, 2012.
