Born on this day in 1902, to Thomas & Mary Barry, a son, Kevin who would go on to have a short but impactful life.

As a young revolutionary UCD Medical Student, Kevin was executed for his part in the Irish War of Independence. His image is captured in the stained glass window memorial produced by Harry Clarke Studio following a commission by fellow UCD students.
Kevin Barry was a first year medical student at University College Dublin when he was arrested by the British Army during the War of Independence for his part in an ambush on a British army vehicle in which three British soldiers were shot. He was subsequently charged with murder, and executed by hanging in 1920. He was 18 years old and one of the first Irish prisoner to have been executed since the Leaders of the 1916 Rising.
In the years following his execution, Kevin Barry’s fellow UCD students raised funds for the creation of a memorial window, but it was only when Richard O’Rahilly, was elected to the UCD Governing Body in 1932 that the window was finally commissioned.
Designed and worked in double-glazed glass by Richard King at the Harry Clarke stained glass studios in Dublin, the memorial window was unveiled in Earlsfort Terrace in 1934 by the then President of Ireland, Eamonn de Valera. Before Ireland achieved independence, Eamonn De Valera was one of the leaders in the 1916 Easter Uprising, and president of Sinn Fein (1917 to 1926).
In 2010, the window was relocated from his original location in UCD Earlsfort Terrace to the viewing gallery of the UCD Charles Institute for Dermatology Research & Training which now bears his name, the Kevin Barry Gallery.
