Title: Artane Oratory of the Resurrection
Material: Portland Stone
Location: Artane Dublin

A tome in stone, this record of the boys and Brothers who died during the years of the Artane Industrial School is carved on a gently curved ambulatory wall leading to the chapel. The concept for the design is that of a scroll. An introductory inscription introduces one to the purpose of the lettering, the list of names is carved incorporating boys and Brothers in sequence, and acting as a doxology a quotation from the gospel of St. John in Gaelic is set out as a block of lettering to complete the effect of an unrolled scroll.
