At this time, 12 new stained glass windows were installed in the church,
which were donated by various people. As you enter the church porch, there
is a stained glass window that depicts the parable of the farmer sowing
seed on the land. Anne Hogan (nee Quinn) donated this window in memory
of her father and mother, Thomas and Margaret Quinn of Ballintlea.
There are two stained glass windows over the door at the back of the
church, which depict Our Lady of Fatima. Bishop Newman and Fr Costello
P.P donated this window.

The church in Sixmilebridge was not always a chapel of ease.
A chalice in the church was stolen by British soldiers but it was later
recovered. Since then, the Blessed Sacrament has not been kept in this
church and so to this day, it is a chapel of ease.
