He is technically competent, obliging and always willing to take direction from the architect We would have no hesitation in recommending Evan Connon of Connon Studios as a competent provider of stained glass services, and would be pleased to discuss any queries you might have in this regard.”

“Connon Stain Glass Studios were engaged as stained glass sub-contractor on conservation and restoration works to the stained glass windows in the Sanctuary of St. Kevin's Church, Harrington Street, Dublin 8. The works comprised the removal of five windows to facilitate repairs to the window reveals and stone tracery.
Evan Connon and·his team displayed considerable care and skill in their execution of this work. I was particularly impressed by Mr. Connon's willingness to engage with me in attempting to identify a conservation-lead approach to the window following the principle of minimal intervention and maximum retention of the historic materials (both glass and lead).
I would be happy to recommend Connon Stained Glass Studios for similar work in the future.”
